Last week, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) released new modeling data predicting a decline in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations throughout September. This is largely in part to an increase in mask wearing and more people getting vaccinated. The modeling projections were followed up by the latest OHA weekly data report showing a 11% decrease in cases during the week ending September 12 and the most recent daily counts show that decreasing even more. You can stay up to date with the latest data on the OHA COVID-19 website.
