SALEM, OR -- Oregon is on track for a major COVID-19 outbreak. The latest model shows that, within a month, there could be 900 new cases a day with an increase in hospitalizations from 8 to 27. State health officer Dr. Dean Sidelinger says if the new cases are due more to transmission than an increase in testing, the number of new cases rises to 48-hundred a day with 82 hospitalizations, and that could overwhelm hospitals. Sidelinger says if enough people wear masks, maintain distancing, and stay out of large groups it is possible to avoid the worst-case scenario.
