628 new cases reported in state Sunday

Jackson County reports 20 new cases as all those over the age of 16 are eligible to receive vaccine on Monday

The Oregon Health Authority on Sunday reported 628 new COVID-19 cases in the state but no new deaths from the disease.

Jackson County reported 20 new confirmed and presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 Sunday, bringing local totals to 9,923 cases with 127 fatalities to date.

Rising numbers of cases in recent weeks have been reported despite rising numbers of people getting vaccinated. On Monday, everyone over age 16 in Oregon will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Oregon has surpassed 2.5 million jabs in the arm against COVID-19, and more than 1 million people are fully vaccinated against the illness, according to data from the OHA on Sunday.

That means that roughly 24 percent of the state's total population is vaccinated.

The state's pandemic death toll remained unchanged at 2,460, and Oregon has seen 175,121 cases of COVID-19 since Feb. 28, 2020.

Oregon had 20 deaths in the past week, down from 48 the week prior.

The OHA added 32,287 new vaccination doses to the state immunization registry on Sunday.

Oregon has now administered 1,312,413 first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine, 1,121,856 first and second doses of the Moderna vaccine, and 88,405 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. That adds up to 2,523,736 total jabs in the arm.

Nearly 1.6 million Oregonians have had at least one vaccine shot.

According to OHA figures, 1,020,399 Oregonians are fully vaccinated.

Preliminary data from the Portland State University Population Research Center indicates that Oregon's population as of July 1, 2020 was 4,268,055.

The number of individuals hospitalized with COVID-19 across Oregon was 215 on Sunday, and 48 of those individuals were in intensive care unit beds.

Other counties reporting COVID-19 cases on Sunday were: Baker (2); Clackamas (72); Clatsop (4); Columbia (7); Coos (7); Crook (2); Curry (2); Deschutes (47); Douglas (4); Grant (6); Harney (1); Hood River (1); Jackson (20); Jefferson (6); Josephine (9); Klamath (37); Lane (39); Lincoln (4); Malheur (1); Marion (83); Multnomah (142); Polk (11); Tillamook (1); Union (5); Wasco (2); Washington (83); and Yamhill (14).

Presumptive cases are people without a positive diagnostic test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a laboratory-confirmed case. Presumptive cases make up 5% of the total cases, the OHA has said.
