OHA also provided an update on Sunday on the coronavirus hospitalizations statewide.
The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 across Oregon is 535, which is 12 fewer than Saturday. There are 125 COVID-19 patients in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, which is six fewer than Saturday.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity, an email from OHA said.
