With the new cases, there have now been 197,851 confirmed and presumptive cases of the coronavirus in Oregon since the start of the pandemic. There have been more than 4.7 million negative tests in the state.

On Friday, there were 285 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in Oregon, according to OHA, down 16 patients from the previous day. Of those, 78 were in ICU beds, which is one more from Thursday.

Oregon has now administered a total of 2,048,515 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,518,646 first and second doses of Moderna and 129,770 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. OHA says the seven-day running average for vaccines is now 29,816 doses per day.

On Friday, Governor Brown announced a new incentive plan to get shots of the COVID-19 vaccine into arms across the state. Oregonians who are 18 and older will have the chance to win $1 million or one of 36 $10,000 prizes, which will have one winner in each county in Oregon. Oregonians who are 12 to 17 years old, who are eligible to be vaccinated but are not old enough to play lottery games, will have a chance to win one of five $100,000 Oregon College Savings Plan scholarships.
