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 8 presumptive cases in Oregon beyond the new confirmed cases.

OHA reported new confirmed or presumptive cases in the following counties: Benton (3), Clackamas (5), Clatsop (9), Coos (1), Deschutes (1), Hood River (1), Josephine (2), Linn (1), Marion (13), Morrow (1), Multnomah (15), Polk (19), Umatilla (3), Washington (5), Yamhill (1).

Oregon rolls out COVID-19 cases by ZIP code

On Tuesday, OHA said that it would begin coronavirus case data by ZIP code and county, providing "a more granular, community level look at the disease trends in Oregon."

"To protect privacy, if a ZIP code’s population is less than 1,000, the ZIP codes will be combined and reported in the aggregate case count," OHA said. "And if there are fewer than 10 cases in a ZIP code it will be listed as '1-9.'"
