Covid-19 mask

Oregon’s count of coronavirus cases has grown by 277 new confirmed and presumptive cases, the Oregon Health Authority announced Saturday, one day after the highest recorded single-day total of new cases since the pandemic began. The state has now eclipsed 32,500 total cases.

Lane County, Oregon’s fourth most populous, had the most new cases of any county with 44. Multnomah County, the state’s largest, was second with 33.

Public health officials cautioned Friday that cases in the area of Eugene, Lane County’s largest city, were surging, in part because of college student get-togethers. The University of Oregon reported at last 37 students who live off-campus tested positive this week.
