Oregon Gov. Kate Brown will not reopen the state economy until public health officials say it’s safe to do so, she announced Tuesday. Brown said she needs to see a drastic improvement in the state’s ability to test and isolate confirmed COVID-19 patients quickly.
The state’s testing capacity has been severely limited from the start. On April 11, the Oregon Health Authority had confirmed some 1,400 cases of COVID-19, but estimated the true number of cases at around 7,000.
“While we have to be careful, we also cannot stand still,” she said. “We all know this is a global problem and leaders across the world are struggling how to approach this.”
You’ve got this!!! Way to go!!!
