COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Oregon as the number of people vaccinated falls

Meanwhile, the 7-day average for new COVID cases in Oregon is up by about 27 percent this week compared to a month ago, from 237 cases to 326. And the running average for new vaccine doses is down by about 75 percent from a month ago, from nearly 11,000 to about 2,500. Positivity rates continue going up in rural Oregon counties. In Wallowa, Sherman and Morrow counties, at least 1 in 5 people tested early this week tested positive for the coronavirus.

Health officials put out a statement Tuesday reminding Oregonians that vaccination remains the safest and most effective way to prevent serious illness from COVID-19. That includes protection from the widespread delta variant. Of those new cases, 595 were reported on Tuesday alone. It was the highest daily case count reported since May 11.
