Public Health Response

COVID-19 Cases

  • Today Oregon saw 274 new confirmed and presumptive cases and 3 new deaths.
  • The Governor and OHA are encouraging people to avoid in person gatherings over the Labor Day weekend in order to prevent a spike in cases.
  • Oregon is currently on a downward trend and more and more counties are meeting the metrics for partial or full school reopening.  Because the metrics are for three consecutive weeks a spike in cases from over the weekend could result in counties having to restart their counts.

 

Economic Relief

  • You can find a collection of resources for businesses and individuals on the House Republican Caucus’s COVID-19 Economic Resources page.
  • The Small Business Navigator has been set up by Business Oregon to help direct Oregon businesses to the resources they need.
  • The Veteran Resource Navigator has launched to assist veterans and their families in accessing federal, state, and local resources during the COVID-19 crisis.
