Open Safe Oregon

Weekly Trends & Risk Assessment for July 13, 2020
Last updated: 7/14/2020

COVID Exit Strategy (, a non-partisan group of public health and crisis experts, has been tracking the progress states have made towards containing COVID-19. On July 10th, as the epidemic worsened, the group added a new color to their grading scale, indicating states with uncontrolled spread of the virus. Oregon is currently doing better than most states, and is rated “Yellow,” indicating that the state is making progress towards containing COVID-19, but the virus is still spreading enough to require caution.

OSPIRG is currently tracking 3 critical metrics to measure the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon: (1) daily COVID+ cases reported per 100,000 population; (2) the percentage of diagnostic tests for COVID-19 that are returned positive; and (3) available hospital capacity to care for COVID+ patients.

Oregon is currently meeting 1 out of 3 benchmarks and overall the state is making progress towards containment, but still warranting caution.
