Modeling Shows Hope, But Actions Will Determine COVID Case Numbers

The Oregon Health Authorty’s newest modeling offers some encouragement that the spread of COVID-19 is slowing, but it requires more adult Oregonians to get vaccinated and following statewide safety mandates.  During a Tuesday press conference with Governor Kate Brown, state epidemiologist Dr. Dean Sidelinger says decisions made in the next few weeks will determine whether COVID numbers actually do go down.  He continued to push for everyone to get vaccinated, wear masks in public settings, and practice social distancing.  Sidelinger says hospitals are reaching a saturation point where health systems are not able to provide care to everyone arriving at their doors.
