SALEM, Ore-- 366 days ago, the state of Oregon reported is first known case of coronavirus. 366 days later, the state has reported more than 155,000 cases of the virus and more than 2,200 deaths attributed to Covid-19.

In the one year since coronavirus breached Oregon's boarders, the state has gone into multiple shutdowns, thousands became unemployed and businesses have struggled to stay open.

“For so many Oregonians, after living through the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfires, flooding, severe winter weather, and a long-overdue reckoning on racism and racial justice, our lives are far different than they were on February 28, one year ago," said Governor Kate Brown in a statement today.

In that statement regarding Oregon's one-year anniversary of the state's first known coronavirus case, Gov. Brown said that she wanted to a moment to thank all of the citizens, frontline workers and others for the work that they put in to help keep Oregon afloat during the pandemic.

“Thank you to everyone who has helped friends and neighbors in need––from Oregonians experiencing hunger or homelessness, to those displaced by wildfires, to those who lost jobs and livelihoods during the pandemic," said Gov. Brown.

Since the beginning of February of this year, coronavirus cases have significantly decreased, while vaccinations are continuing to rise across the state. According to the latest numbers from the Oregon Health Authority, Oregon has administered a grand total of 973,022 first and second doses to Oregonians. The state is roughly about 27,000 administered doses short of reaching one million total vaccinations administered.

But even with vaccinations increasing, the governor stated that we can't forget the lives that have been lost since the pandemic started in Oregon.

“Today and every day, we remember the more than 2,200 Oregonians we have lost," Gov. Brown said. "Our hearts are with the families who have lost loved ones to this deadly disease. We must continue to keep each other safe by wearing masks, avoiding gatherings with people from outside our households, maintaining distance, washing our hands, and staying home while sick."

Across Southern Oregon, only two counties remain in the state's 'Extreme Risk' category including Josephine and Douglas counties. All other counties are currently at a 'High Risk' or below.
