SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Gov. Kate Brown has extended her state of emergency declaration until Jan. 2, as COVID-19 cases in the state continue to rise.

The Oregon Health Authority reported 391 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 on October 27, bringing the state total to 42,808. There were nine additional deaths, increasing the death toll to 664.

Extending the state of emergency declaration allows the executive orders the governor has issued to stay in effect.

Health officials called the recent number of cases ''troubling'' and said based on current COVID-19 modeling, if Oregon remains on its current path the state could reach capacity in its hospitals by mid-December.
