JUNE

[Updated 3:25 p.m. Tuesday, June 30]

Gov. Kate Brown today extended her declaration of a state of emergency regarding COVID-19 for an additional 60 days, until Sept. 4, and issued the following statement.

“When I first declared a state of emergency due to the coronavirus, there were 14 cases of COVID-19 in Oregon. Today, there have been over 8,600 cases, with over a quarter of those cases identified in the previous two weeks of June. While hospitalizations remain relatively low, we have seen how rapidly those numbers can climb. And, sadly, 207 Oregonians have lost their lives to this disease. Without a doubt, COVID-19 continues to pose a real and present threat to Oregonians in communities across the state, from Malheur County to Umatilla to Lincoln."

The state of emergency declaration is the legal underpinning for the executive orders the governor has issued, including her orders on reopening Oregon while maintaining essential health and safety protections, as well as orders around childcare, schools, and higher education operations. 

Moving forward, the Brown will review and reevaluate each of her emergency orders every 60 days, to determine whether those orders should be continued, modified, or rescinded.

[Updated at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, June 29] Yamhill County reported four new cases of COVID-19 over the weekend and one on Monday, bringing its total to 117 cases overall, as of its report on Monday. 

The new weekend cases comprised two people in their 50s, and one each in their 20s and 70s. Two were reported in the McMinnville zip code and one  in the Newberg zip code; it was not clear where the fourth case occurred, because the county doesn't report specific numbers for areas with fewer than five cases.

[Updated at 1:30 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. Friday, June 26] Yamhill County reported seven new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, its largest one-day increase to date; and another three cases on Friday.

Health and Human Services Director Lindsey Manfrin told the News-Register that "We are seeing cases linked to gatherings such as BBQ’s, birthday parties, etc. If people are going to gather we urge them to do it outdoors, maintain distancing, wear face coverings, be careful doing things such as sharing food in ways that many people will be touching things like serving utensils, and not go if they are ill."

On Friday, Oregon reported 250 new cases statewide. 

The Oregon Health Authority released new modeling numbers on Friday, indicating that coronavirus is spreading more rapidly in Oregon. New daily case numbers have quadrupled since May, however, the state has said that some of the increase was due to increased testing.

On Friday, it said that, although its most optimistic scenario offers that projection, "This is the least likely scenario to occur because it assumes diagnosis of all new cases and presently about one-third of new infections cannot be traced to a known source."

The state also offered a moderate and a "pessimistic" projection, suggesting that new cases could increase exponentially over the coming weeks. Under the moderate scenario, it said, "daily infections of COVID-19 could rise over the next month to more than 900 per day, with daily hospitalizations rising from 8 to 27."

Under the pessimistic scenario, "infections could rise to more than 4,800, and hospitalizations could increase to 82 per day."

Oregon state health officer Dean Sidelinger, MD, urged Oregonians to "think hard about your choice of activities, especially as we get close to the Fourth of July holiday. Ask yourself: how can I reduce my risk and the risk I might pose to people around me?"

Not sure a victory lap is in order....Access to testing is a weak spot in the county and the infection numbers continue to grow....maybe she could be more vocal about her views on social distance and PPE.....
