SALEM, OR -- Oregon’s State Health Officer says the number of COVID-19 cases in Oregon will continue to rise, as will the number of people being monitored for the virus. Dr. Dean Sidelinger says 226 people are currently under monitoring,165 have tested negative and 52 tests are pending. Sidelinger says they are considering putting restrictions on nursing home visits as the elderly are at greater risk for complications. He says the latest advice is still the same—wash your hands, cover your cough or sneeze and stay home if you are sick.
