COVID-19 & Vaccine Watch

Current Radar Image
Alert Banner

When Oregon coronavirus cases, hospitalizations and deaths peaked at the end of November, Governor Kate Brown introduced a new system of measures based on four COVID-19 'risk levels' — determined by case rates in individual counties.

Many of Oregon's counties fall under Extreme Risk restrictions, limiting or closing many businesses and other organizations.

Meanwhile, limited shipments of COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed throughout the state to people in Oregon's Phase 1a and the first groups of Phase 1b. As of March 1, all Oregon seniors are eligible to receive the vaccine.
