- It was determined that a new case reported in Josephine County on May 12 should have been reported on May 6.
- A confirmed case originally reported as a Clackamas County case was later determined not to be a case. It was subtracted from Wednesday’s state total, and the total number of cases in Clackamas County was reduced by one to reflect this change.
- A presumptive case originally reported as a Multnomah County case was later determined not to be a case. It was subtracted from Wednesday’s state total, and the total number of cases in Multnomah County was reduced by one to reflect this change.
- A case that was recorded as transferred out of Coos County was indeed a Coos County case.
