CORVALLIS, Ore.-- The Oregon State University study nicknamed TRACE released its findings from the second weekend of testing for coronavirus.

The data estimates one out of every 1,000 people in Corvallis had the coronavirus. Out of the 672 samples taken from 359 households, none came back positive for the virus. All the samples were collected over the weekend of May 2 and May 3.

The first weekend of testing on April 25 and April 26 estimated two out of every 1,000 people in Corvallis had COVID-19.

Researchers with the study said this data only looks at the prevalence of getting the virus, not the risk. They said the more people you encounter in a day, the more likely you are to catch the virus.

Interacting with 10 people will only give you a 1% chance of getting the virus. If you go to a highly populated place, like a grocery store with 100 people, the risk increases to 10%. An event with 1,000 people increases the risk to 50%.

TRACE was planning to do one last round of testing this weekend but postponed it to see how the easing of the stay-at-home order affects the number of cases.
