PORTLAND, Ore. — Since testing for the new coronavirus began in Oregon, public health officials have been compiling and posting the total number of detected cases, as well negative test results. Now it's possible to see those numbers not just at the state level, but broken down by county.

In some cases, local public health officials have been reluctant to report the number of tests that have been performed in their area, citing health privacy concerns. Regardless, the Oregon Health Authority is now publishing those results on its website.

These test results include only those that have either returned positive or negative. Pending tests are not reported, and those figures are only available directly from the Oregon Public Health Laboratory — and with private labs increasingly aiding in testing, those numbers would not be entirely accurate either.

The final results of all tests in the state, whether public or private, must be reported to OHA once completed, which means that these published numbers are accurate according to state health authorities.

For southern Oregon in particular, there are a few interesting takeaways. First, Jackson County has seen a surpising number of tests — more than 200 — for only finding two travel-related cases. Josephine County has received results from just 30 tests in total, one of which returned positive last week.

Klamath County has completed 46 tests with the single positive result. Zero tests have come from Lake County residents, making it the only county in the state with zero tests completed. Curry County has had 12 tests completed, with no positive results.

From the state data generally, some trends emerge. The vast majority of cases appeared in people age 35 and up. A more narrow majority — 103 of the 191 confirmed cases reported as of Monday — appeared in people age 55 or older.

Of the 191 confirmed cases, at least 56 people were confirmed to have been hospitalized from coronavirus. The status of a few were unknown.

The table below shows cases by county as of Monday. OHA updates its completed testing data every day.
