OHA reports 127 new COVID-19 cases
The Oregon Health Authority reported 127 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, raising the state’s cumulative total to 205,154.
The agency reported no new fatalities, keeping the death toll at 2,730, according to a news release.
Not all data was available. Jackson County Public Health recently announced it would only report new cases and deaths on weekdays, meaning data from Sunday and Monday would be reported Tuesdays.
“These changes are occurring to better integrate the response into regular business hours for Jackson County Public Health and are made possible by the sustained decrease in cases seen over the last three weeks,” a June 7 news release said. “The change will not have a negative effect on the total new COVID-19 cases for the week.”
Josephine County reported three new cases, increasing its total to 3,532.
There were 174 Oregonians hospitalized Monday with COVID-19, 11 more than Sunday, with 46 of those patients in intensive care unit beds, an increase of seven since Sunday. Jackson and Josephine counties reported 12 COVID-19 patients hospitalized, one fewer than Sunday.
There were 2,038,610 Oregonians who had completed their COVID-19 vaccine series Monday, with 284,850 others who had received one shot in a two-dose regimen. A person is considered “fully vaccinated” 14 days after completing the series.
As of Monday, 71,522 more Oregon adults needed to get vaccinated to reach Gov. Kate Brown’s goal of 70%.
In Jackson County, 86,879 residents had completed their series, while 10,544 others had received one of two doses. In Josephine County, 30,278 residents had completed their series, while 3,388 others had received one of two doses.
