PORTLAND — Oregon topped 1,500 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 both Saturday and Sunday, setting new one-day records each day, the Oregon Health Authority reported.

The state reported 1,517 new cases and one new death Sunday after reporting 1,509 new cases and seven more deaths Saturday.

When combined with the 1,306 new cases reported Friday, it marked three straight days the state has had new one-day highs in reported cases. Four new deaths were reported Friday.

“Oregon is on a steep and stark slope of rising Coronavirus cases," OHA Director Patrick Allen said. “But we aren't powerless in the face of this virus. Because it depends on us to slow the spread. Your choices make a difference.

“Local health officials in every part of the state have investigated outbreaks that started with get-togethers that seemed innocent at the time, but led to many people getting sick, and in some cases, hospitalizations and deaths.”

Allen repeated pleas last week by state officials for Oregon residents to take care this holiday week.

“This Thanksgiving, cancel any plans you have to celebrate indoors with large groups of family and friends,” he said. “The safest, wisest and most caring way to protect the people you love is to keep your Thanksgiving dinner small and limited to no more than one other household beside your own. Keep the holidays a time to remember, not a time to regret."

Coos County had 23 new cases over the weekend, while Curry County had nine and Douglas County 86.

Wheeler County, which has had by far the fewest cases in the state, reported its second case Saturday. In all, 33 of Oregon’s 36 counties had new cases over the weekend. Only Gilliam, Sherman and Wallowa counties did not. Grant County, another in the eastern part of the state, nearly doubled its count since the start of the pandemic with a total of 53 new cases over the weekend.

As of 12:01 a.m. Sunday, the state had 65,170 total cases and 820 deaths.
