Only 184 reported on Monday, zero deaths
As many Oregon residents sit in the dark trying to stay warm through the fallout of yet another disaster, neighbors reach out and help one another, while government agencies seem helpless.
There are zero new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, and the state’s death toll remains at 2,137, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
Oregon Health Authority reported 184 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 150,464.
The Oregon Health Authority is attributing the downward trend to the weather event.
"Case and electronic laboratory result counts are lower than anticipated today. This is likely related to the winter weather event and hazardous travel conditions."
The State declared an emergency over the COVID disease nearly a year ago, and the state's leadership, particularly Governor Kate Brown does not seem willing to loosen mandated restrictions on the Oregon populace, who has had to circumstantially deal with a series of what most residents are considering more dire emergencies.
The historic Labor Day Wildfires and the recent storm which left so many in the dark and cold on Valentine's Day 2021 come to mind.
Many observers have noted how nice it would be right now to sit in a warm restaurant with electricity.
