OHSU Projection Forecasts More COVID-19 Hospitalizations Than Predicted

(Portland, OR)  --  An updated projection from OHSU shows nearly 12-hundred people will be hospitalized with COVID-19 by September 6th.  That's over a hundred people more than the initial prediction.  Health officials say 45-percent of Oregon's ICU beds are currently filled with COVID-19 patients.  The statewide indoor mask mandate that started August 13th isn't having a significant impact yet.  Oregon's outdoor mask mandate begins today.  Health officials say masking and vaccinations will reduce the surge of patients.
