"Today, I extended the COVID-19 state of emergency for 60 days. The choices we make will determine if Oregon flattens the curve of new COVID-19 infections, or sees a devastating spike in cases that overwhelms our hospital capacity next month. What happens next is up to all of us.
When I first declared a state of emergency, there were 14 cases of COVID-19 in Oregon. Now, there have been over 8,600, with over a quarter of those cases from the previous two weeks of June. And, sadly, 207 Oregonians have lost their lives to this disease.
(The state of emergency declaration is the legal underpinning for my executive orders to keep Oregonians healthy and safe, including ones on reopening, childcare, schools, and higher education operations. Extending the emergency declaration allows these to stay in effect.)"
