Oregon sets another grim record with 21 COVID-19 deaths reported in a single day

We are saddened to report that the 21 COVID-19 deaths that health officials are reporting today set a one-day record.

“We feel pain and sorrow for our neighbors who’ve lost their lives to COVID-19 and the families they leave behind,” said Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen. “And each death we record is a reminder that COVID-19 is a life-threatening virus that’s easy to catch, a warning that more Oregonians will die if we don’t contain it and a call to action to stop its spread.”

Keep doing your part to help reduce the spread of the virus: Wear a mask, keep six feet between you and other people when you’re in public, and wash your hands often. In addition, all Oregon counties are currently subject to a two-week freeze, which recommends that you limit the size of your social gatherings to six people or fewer and gather with no more than one other household at a time.

You can reduce your risk of getting or spread COVID-19 by keeping your social gatherings: small, brief, outdoors, physically distant. #MyORHealth horizontal rule

Do you need health insurance?

Many Oregonians who are uninsured may qualify for the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) or for help paying for coverage through the Marketplace. Oregon’s Marketplaceopen enrollment runs from Nov. 1 through Dec. 15 and is the only time of year many people can buy private health insurance.

In 2020, more than seven in 10 Oregonians who chose plans through HealthCare.gov got financial help for monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs. Due to job losses during the pandemic, we estimate thousands of Oregonians may be newly eligible for help paying for health insurance. Want help? Experts are available to offer free assistance remotely and in person by appointment following COVID-19 safety protocols. Find local help on OregonHealthCare.gov.

Remember, you must apply and enroll by Dec. 15 to get coverage for 2021 through the Marketplace. You can apply for the Oregon Health Plan at OHP.Oregon.gov at any time. To find out what coverage and savings are available to you, visit OregonHealthCare.gov/WindowShop.
