Today, Governor Kate Brown issued Executive Order 20-65 following last week's announcement of a statewide freeze to stop the rapid community spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. In light of increasing COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, the order outlines necessary risk reduction measures designed to limit gatherings and curb human contact
Starting tomorrow, Nov. 18, Oregon will begin the statewide two-week freeze.

OHA reports new records and renewed determination
We are saddened to report that today marks the highest number of cases and deaths reported in a single day in Oregon since the beginning of the pandemic. OHA reports 1,225 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases and 20 new deaths.
“We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost a loved one to COVID-19,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen.
Sadly, we have also surpassed our 800th COVID-19 death today, less than three weeks after marking the 700th death. These are family, friends and neighbors, and we note their deaths with sadness and a renewed determination to suppress the spread of the virus.
