(Portland, OR)  --  The Oregon Health Authority reports new cases of COVID-19 in the state continues to decline.  Health officials say there were nearly 13-hundred cases reported last week.  That's down 12-percent from the week before.  The number of positive tests increased from four-point-three-percent to five-point-six-percent.  Health officials want the percentage of positive tests to be below five-percent.  Officials say the number of Oregonians being tested declined 35-percent, likely due to the wildfires and the smoke.  The Oregon Health Authority confirmed two new deaths from COVID-19 along with 195 new cases yesterday.
