Oregon breaks another COVID-19 daily record, with 600 diagnoses

The Oregon Health Authority Friday announced another record-breaking day of new confirmed and presumptive coronavirus cases.

The agency reported 600 diagnoses, breaking the previous record, set only a day prior, of 575 cases.

OHA also reported two new coronavirus-related deaths Friday, bringing the state’s total deaths to 675.

The record-breaking case numbers come the same day Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and other state officials announced new guidelines for public schools, potentially reopening more schools to in-person instruction.
