OREGON HAS HIGHEST EVER DAILY COVID-19 CASE COUNT, ON SATURDAY

July 11, 2020 1:35 p.m.

The Oregon Health Authority reported the highest ever daily case count since the COVID-19 pandemic began, on Saturday.

The OHA update shows 409 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19, bringing the state total to 11,851. OHA said the high number is partially due to a transition to a new reporting system, which prevented the processing of positive cases for a few hours on Thursday. Those cases are included in the case count reported Saturday.

The new cases include:

*99 in Multnomah County

*61 in Marion County

*55 in Washington County

*50 in Umatilla County

*29 in Clackamas County

*16 in Malheur County

*15 each in Deschutes and Yamhill counties

*13 in Lane County

*10 in Wasco County

*7 in Morrow County

*6 in Benton County

*5 in Jackson County

*4 in each in Klamath and Jefferson counties

*3 in Josephine County

*2 each in Douglas, Coos, Hood River, Linn, Baker and Polk counties

*1 each in Columbia, Sherman, and Union and Wallowa counties

OHA again emphasized that COVID-19 is spreading as more people are getting together with family and friends for celebrations.

OHA recommends residents:

*Limit the size of gatherings

*Keep physical distance from others

*Cover faces

*Find alternative ways for those who are vulnerable to participating in gatherings.
