Oregon reports 869 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases,       51 new deaths

PORTLAND, Ore. There are 51 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 5,066, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

OHA reported 869 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 386,634.

Link to today’s OHA media availability

This afternoon OHA Director Patrick Allen; Colt Gill, Director of the Oregon Department of Education; and Dr. Dean Sidelinger, Oregon State Medical Officer and State Epidemiologist answered media questions and provided an update on the latest developments in the COVID-19 pandemic in Oregon.

Here are the talking points and here is the video.

COVID-19 extra dose tracking at Oregon long-term care facilities

Starting today OHA’s Long-Term Care Facility Vaccination dashboard, available here, will include extra dose information that allows the agency to continue to track vaccination efforts at nursing, assisted living and residential care facilities licensed by the Oregon Department of Human Services’ (ODHS) Office of Aging and People with Disabilities.

Long-term care facilities are currently required to report COVID-19 vaccination data to the state, effective June 1, 2021. On Oct. 18, this requirement was expanded to include reporting of extra doses, which refers to any COVID-19 vaccine received after completion of the primary series, either as a booster dose or an additional dose.

The dashboard will continue to be updated on a weekly basis.

“This tool is an important resource for OHA and ODHS to monitor regional and statewide trends, and for facilities as they plan for ongoing COVID-19 vaccination needs,” said Rebecca Pierce, Ph.D., manager of the Healthcare-Associated Infections Program in the OHA Public Health Division’s Acute & Communicable Disease Prevention Section.

“Extra dose data provide a more complete picture of vaccination coverage in long-term care,” she said.

The extra dose information on the dashboard can be used to track vaccination progress over time. The dashboard makes it possible to monitor based on different filters, such as by region or county.

As of November 1, 3,785 staff members have received an extra dose, representing 26.3% of staff reported as eligible and 14% of all staff among reporting long-term care facilities. For residents, 6,576 have received an extra dose, representing 40.4% of residents reported as eligible and 28.8% of all residents among reporting long-term care facilities.

Tremendous progress has been made by Oregon long-term care facilities in surpassing the state 80% benchmark for staff and resident COVID-19 primary series vaccination. OHA and ODHS have continued to collaborate with facilities, labor, trade associations and long-term care pharmacies to communicate and educate facility operators to provide extra doses for those who are eligible. The agencies will continue to ensure ongoing vaccination is available to residents and the workforce serving them, both of whom have faced extreme hardship during this pandemic.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain. You can find a test here.

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.

Of that total, 2,429 were initial doses, 518 were second doses and 8,611 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 26,955 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Nov. 22.
