EUGENE, Ore.--Oregon Health Authority reported one new COVID-19 death and 73 new cases on Friday.

The death toll is now 22.

The death is a 71-year-old man in Polk County who tested positive back on March 19 and died on April 2. Officials say he had underlying medical conditions. 

Benton County is now reporting two new cases, Deschutes four, Clackamas five, Clatsop one, Crook one, Klamath five, Malheur one, Marion 14, Multnomah 15, Polk two, Washington 17, and Yamhill five.

Today the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended wearing masks in public. OHA is reminding Oregonians that staying home and avoiding all non-essential contact with others is also important to keep everyone healthy. 

They ask that before deciding on wearing a mask that you keep two things in mind: medical masks should be reserved for health care providers who are on the front line; and non-medical masks, such as homemade fabric masks, does not replace the need to follow guidance to stay home and limit contact with others.
