For the second day in a row, no new COVID-19 deaths reported in Oregon

OHA reported 65 new confirmed cases and 14 new presumptive cases Monday, bringing Oregon's total to 2,759 cases.

PORTLAND, Ore. — For the second day in a row, Oregon health officials reported no new deaths due to the coronavirus.

The state's death toll remains at 109.

This is the third day since March 29 that Oregon Health Authority has reported no new deaths from COVID-19. The first time was April 22 and the second time was Sunday.

OHA reported 65 new confirmed cases and 14 new presumptive cases Monday, bringing Oregon's total to 2,759 cases. OHA said it's now including presumptive COVID-19 cases in order to comply with recently amended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"A presumptive case is someone who does not have a positive PCR test -- a “Polymerase Chain Reaction” that confirms if a person has COVID-19 -- but is showing symptoms and has had close contact with a confirmed case. If they later test positive by PCR, those will be recategorized as confirmed cases," OHA said in a prepared statement.

The new cases were found in the following counties:

  • Benton: 4
  • Clackamas: 1
  • Clatsop: 1
  • Coos: 2
  • Deschutes: 1
  • Hood River: 1
  • Jefferson: 1
  • Lane: 1
  • Linn: 10
  • Marion: 17
  • Multnomah: 15
  • Polk: 8
  • Umatilla: 6
  • Washington: 10
  • Yamhill: 1
