SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority reported 21 more deaths attributed to coronavirus on Tuesday and more than 1,000 new cases, amid a slow and steady rise in hospitalizations.

The 21 fatalities reported Tuesday represent a new one-day record, bringing the state's death toll to 847.

"We feel pain and sorrow for our neighbors who’ve lost their lives to COVID-19 and the families they leave behind," said OHA director Patrick Allen. "And each death we record is a reminder that COVID-19 is a life-threatening virus that’s easy to catch, a warning that more Oregonians will die if we don’t contain it and a call to action to stop its spread.”

OHA also reported 1,011 new confirmed and presumptive coronavirus cases as of Tuesday morning, bringing the state's total to 67,333.

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported were in the following counties: Baker (7), Benton (20), Clackamas (106), Clatsop (7), Columbia (7), Coos (4), Crook (3), Curry (7), Deschutes (44), Douglas (19), Grant (4), Harney (2), Hood River (6), Jackson (56), Jefferson (12), Josephine (11), Klamath (16), Lake (9), Lane (57), Lincoln (23), Linn (21), Malheur (17), Marion (113), Morrow (5), Multnomah (150), Polk (30), Tillamook (1), Umatilla (34), Union (4), Wasco (9), Washington (183), and Yamhill (24).

"People can do their part to help reduce the spread of the virus: wear a mask, keep six feet between you and other people when you’re in public and wash hands often," state health officials said. "In addition, all Oregon counties are currently subject to a two-week freeze, which recommends that you limit the size of your social gatherings to six people or fewer, and gather with no more than one other household at a time."

According to the OHA, hospitalizations of COVID-19 patients have continued to steadily climb. There were 474 hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Oregon on Tuesday, 18 more than the day prior. 113 of those patients were in ICU beds, four more than the day prior.
