Monday saw the beginning of the state reporting "presumptive" cases of COVID-19 — those who likely have the virus, but have not yet tested positive.

"A presumptive case is someone who does not have a positive PCR test — a 'Polymerase Chain Reaction' that confirms if a person has COVID-19 — but is showing symptoms and has had close contact with a confirmed case," OHA said. "If they later test positive by PCR, those will be recategorized as confirmed cases."

There are 14 presumptive cases in Oregon beyond the new confirmed cases.

OHA reported new cases in the following counties: Benton (4), Clackamas (1), Clatsop (1), Coos (2), Deschutes (1), Hood River (1), Jefferson (1), Lane (1), Linn (10), Marion (17), Multnomah (15), Polk (8), Umatilla (6), Washington (10), Yamhill (1).

Most recent modeling shows 'reduced transmission' of COVID-19, OHA says

On Friday, OHA released its latest modeling for coronavirus spread in the state, demonstrating that "statewide mitigation efforts are working to flatten the curve."

"This week’s report also modeled three scenarios from May 4 until June 4, assuming interventions with different levels of effectiveness in reducing transmission," OHA said. "The comparison shows this epidemic is clearly very sensitive to changes in policies or public adherence to community mitigation strategies."

According to OHA, the modeling also demonstrates that loosening of coronavirus restrictions needs to be done gradually to avoid a dramatic increase in infections.

"Any changes need to be accompanied by other interventions to keep transmission levels low. Other interventions include increased testing capacity, detailed contact tracing and likely the quarantining of infected individuals," OHA said.
