In a statement Saturday night, Gov. Kate Brown reminded Oregonians of the benefits of avoiding crowds and taking other “social distancing” measures.
“We must all do what we can to slow the spread of this disease: avoid large events, follow social distancing protocols, and, above all, stay home when sick,” Brown said in her statement.
As of Saturday evening the Oregon Health Authority had reported 36 cases of COVID-19 in Oregon, including three in Deschutes County. Deschutes has the third-highest number of cases in the state, behind Washington County, which has 13 cases as of Saturday, and Linn County, where the vets' home is located.
