PORTLAND, Ore. -- Oregon set a new record on Friday of the most COVID-19 cases reported in a single day.

With 550 new confirmed and presumptive cases, the state total has skyrocketed to 41,348.

The new cases include the following: Baker (1), Benton (9), Clackamas (48), Columbia (3), Coos (5), Crook (7), Curry (1), Deschutes (11), Douglas (3), Grant (1), Harney (1), Hood River (4), Jackson (33), Jefferson (1), Josephine (1), Klamath (1), Lane (52), Lincoln (2), Linn (19), Malheur (13), Marion (57), Morrow (1), Multnomah (135), Polk (3), Umatilla (21), Union (1), Wasco (2), Washington (91), and Yamhill (23).

The Oregon Health Authority said the high case count is due to continued widespread community transmission with small clusters and outbreaks across the state.

Health officials said this is a reminder that Oregonians can't let their guards down.

“We all need to aggressively adhere to the face covering guidance and always wear a mask,” said Shimi Sharief, OHA senior health advisor. “We know everyone is tired and we all wish this would go away, but the reality is this disease is spreading in Oregon and it’s on all of us to protect ourselves and each other.”

Three new deaths have been added to the toll, bringing it to 649. The new deaths include an 82-year-old Marion County woman, a 79-year-old Multnomah County woman and a 68-year-old Multnomah County man. OHA said they each had underlying conditions.
