As of Saturday, Oregon’s cumulative positivity rate is 4.6 percent of people tested. This is considerably lower than the national average of 8 percent. Of 17,365 test results reported so far for the week of September 6th-12th, 965 or 5.6 percent were positive. The update said the total for that week is likely to rise as test results continue to be reported to OHA.
Test positivity had been declining since a peak in late July, however current results indicate a lower number of tests and a higher test positivity for the most recent week. The OHA will continue to monitor the situation.
