(Update: details of new deaths released)

Portland, Ore. (KTZ) – Oregon has 22 new COVID-19 related deaths, including Deschutes County’s 40th death, with the state’s death toll rising to 1,865, the Oregon Health Authority reported on Friday.

OHA reported 877 new confirmed and prescribed cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 am on Friday, bringing the state total to 136,839.

Vaccination in Oregon

On Friday, OHA reported that 16,763 new doses of COVID-19 vaccination were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 12,341 vaccine doses were given on Thursday and 4,422 on previous days but were recorded in the vaccine registry on Thursday.

Cumulative daily totals may take several days to finalize as providers have 72 hours to report the administered dose and many providers lag behind in their reporting due to technical challenges. OHA is providing technical support to immunization sites to improve the timeliness of its data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

Oregon now cumulatively administers a total of 270,453 first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. All vaccinations were administered by Oregon hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical service (EMS) agencies, urgent care facilities, and local public health officials (LPHA).

To date, 487,700 doses of the vaccine have been given to sites across Oregon.

St. Charles Health System said it gave 8,942 COVID-19 vaccinations as of 4 a.m. Friday.

These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data and Oregon’s dashboards have been updated.

COVID-19 Hospital

The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in Oregon is 317, 12 fewer than Thursday. The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds have 79 COVID-19 patients, which is eight fewer than Thursday.

St. Charles Bend reported 18 COVID-19 patients as of 4 on Friday, two in the ICU, one on ventilator.

The total number of hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The number does not reflect admissions per day, nor hospital length. Staffing limits are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

New Quarantine Guidelines for Fully Immunized People

Those who are fully immunized and allow at least 14 days to pass do not follow their last dose of vaccine if they do not require close contact with an individual with COVID-19 . Those who are fully immunized should still monitor themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 during 14 days of exposure, and if symptoms develop, they should be isolated and tested. Individuals who have been fully vaccinated should continue to follow measures to protect themselves and others, including maintaining a six-foot physical distance, avoiding congestion, frequently washing hands and wearing masks. Please refer to OHA’s updated COVID-19 investigative guidelines.
