SALEM, Ore. – Fifteen counties recently placed in extreme risk by the state will be moved back to high risk on Friday, Gov. Kate Brown announced on Tuesday.

The change is due to a drop in coronavirus patients that are hospitalized, which means Oregon no longer meets the metrics for the highest risk level.

“Let me be clear: across the state, COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are still high, and Oregon is not out of the woods yet,” Brown said.

The changes take effect May 7. A total of 24 counties will be under high risk, four under moderate risk and eight at lower risk. For a complete list, click here.
