OHA director marks 1 year since first case of COVID-19 in Oregon with open letter to residents

Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen released an open letter to Oregonians on Sunday to mark the one-year anniversary of Oregon’s first COVID-19 case. He asks state residents to maintain pandemic precautions and choose to be vaccinated. Read the letter here.

“But there’s another number Oregonians should bear in mind, especially as we confront the coming months of the pandemic: 4,000. That’s approximately the number of lives you’ve saved by wearing a mask, limiting in-person gatherings and maintaining social distance.”
