PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – The Oregon Health Authority reported a new record of 1,517 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 in Oregon for the third consecutive day on Sunday.

There have been more than 944,444 negative COVID-19 tests in the state during the pandemic. The new positive cases reported Sunday brings the state's total to 65,170.

“Oregon is on a steep and stark slope of rising Coronavirus cases,” OHA Director Patrick Allen said. “But we aren’t powerless in the face of this virus. Because it depends on us to slow the spread. Your choices make a difference.

Local health officials in every part of the state have investigated outbreaks that started with get-togethers that seemed innocent at the time, but led to many people getting sick, and in some cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

This Thanksgiving, cancel any plans you have to celebrate indoors with large groups of family and friends. The safest, wisest and most caring way to protect the people you love is to keep your Thanksgiving dinner small and limited to no more than one other household beside your own. Keep the holidays a time to remember, not a time to regret.”

  • Benton: 7
  • Clackamas: 207
  • Clatsop: 7
  • Columbia: 8
  • Coos: 9

  • Lincoln: 1
  • Linn: 27
  • Malheur: 16

  • Morrow: 7
  • Multnomah: 516
  • Polk: 26
  • Umatilla: 47
  • Union: 5
  • Wasco: 11
  • Washington: 128

  • A 65-year-old man in Multnomah County who tested positive on Nov. 15 and died on Nov. 15. Place of death and presence of underlying conditions are being confirmed.

How many of the new cases did they become sick?

True story here. Yesterday, left alone in the car for 15 minutes, my little Pomeranian pooch (named Killer, BTW) took a dump in my face mask. If you DO 'issssyue' an "order" me to wear a mask, have I got one for YOU!


Wow, Gov Brown is Breaking Records Left and Left. Congratulations Bobblehead Brown


You're one of the low IQ , right wingers who refuse to acknowledge science and common sense. I'm sure you think the earth is flat.

Yes, seemingly she and people like Cuomo get a free a pass, of course they all blame Trump for the deaths.

Yes, that is the simple nature of any life. It grows, to the limits of its environment to sustain, and then the virus [or parasitic species] diminishes and dies when its hosts (that's us) are gone. It does not warrant headlines, surprise or alarm. It is to be expected and fought, not accepted by fear.
