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.

The vast majority of Oregon counties fall under Extreme Risk restrictions, limiting or closing many businesses and other organizations.

Meanwhile, shipments of COVID-19 vaccines have arrived and are being distributed throughout the state to people in Oregon's Phase 1a, which includes healthcare workers, first responders, and the residents and staff of long-term care facilities.

Stay with NewsWatch 12 for updates as we track new developments in Oregon, California, and beyond.
