OHA Issues Final COVID-19 Update

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Health Authority has issued its final COVID-19 update. State Health Officer Dr. Dean Sidelinger says the public health emergency expired, the mask requirements are gone, and the federal public health emergency is over. He says COVID isn't gone. One-hundred-72 people are hospitalized right now with COVID, but that compares to the peak of one-thousand-178 hospitalizations in September 2021. Sidelinger recommends people over 65 with compromised immunity get the second booster shot just authorized by the FDA.
