TESTING NOTE: Wildfires and hazardous air conditions have affected COVID-19 testing in Oregon. The Oregon State Public Health Laboratory (OSPHL) is closed again today, Tuesday, Sept. 15 due to indoor air safety issues.

Most specimens that the OSPHL cannot process are being re-routed to commercial laboratories. As such OHA does not anticipate a large backlog of tests due to OSPHL’s closure.

So according to OHA there have been 521 COVID deaths out of 4.2 million people in Oregon since March? 28,399 tested positive out of 619,822 total tested. 29,850 total cases were reported but only 521 died as a result (Maybe), I Think that means 29,329 who were reported to have the virus survived. This is great news that there were only 521 deaths out of 4.2 million people attributed to the virus.(Unless your one of the 521.) Be glad when the election's over.
