Oregon on the verge of shutting back down again due to variant viruses

Governor Kate Brown Provides Updates on COVID-19 in Oregon

With the fourth surge of spread upon us, Governor reminds Oregonians that vaccines are the best protection against the virus 

(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown held a press conference today to provide an update on the status of COVID-19 in Oregon, and to urge Oregonians to make a plan to get vaccinated.

“In the race between vaccines and variants, right now the variants have the upper hand,” said Governor Brown. “Today’s cases topped 1,000, with Oregon now ranking second in the nation for having the most rapid growth of infection spread. Our hospitals are about to surpass 300 positive COVID-19 cases. That means several counties are on the verge of having to reinstate Extreme Risk restrictions on businesses and activities.

“At this moment, we are moving backwards. Oregon needs to be moving forward. My goal is to get the state back on track to lift the restrictions this pandemic has forced upon us — I think we can get there by the start of summer, but we will all need to work together.

“In order to fully reopen our economy, we need to reach a significant majority of Oregonians with a vaccine; we need to close the equity gap in our vaccine efforts; and vaccine supplies need to be readily available for all eligible Oregonians who want to be protected. Vaccines are your best protection against the variants and the quickest way for us all to get back to the people and things we miss the most.

“That’s the hill on the horizon. We can climb it together. How quickly we get there is up to each and every one of us.”

A copy of the Governor’s prepared remarks from today’s press conference is available here.

More information on vaccines is available at covidvaccine.oregon.gov.
