“Yesterday, the Oregon Health Authority announced suddenly that the agency would no
longer publicize key information related to COVID-19 deaths in Oregon. This
information has been released daily for months without incident and is critical to
allowing the public to understand how and who the virus is impacting.
“Oregonians have been asked to sacrifice so much in so many ways, they deserve access
to all relevant available information.
“The decision to suspend access to key information calls into question the Governor’s commitment to transparency and accountability at a time when state-level decisions have made Oregon a national outlier by ignoring CDC guidelines and dismissing a science-based approach to vaccine distribution. In order to maintain trust and preserve transparency, Governor Brown and OHA must reverse yesterday’s decision and commit to providing clear, consistent and timely data in all categories moving forward."
