The Oregon Health Authority on Monday reported three COVID-19 deaths and 388 new cases.
Identified cases last week dropped 12% compared to the previous week, marking the second straight week of progress against the pandemic. And Monday’s announced cases are the lowest reported on a given day in four weeks.
Nearly 2 million Oregonians have now been partially or fully vaccinated. Slowing demand prompted the operators of three Portland-area mass vaccination clinics to announce Monday they’ll close shop in June.
