52 COVID-19 cases reported in 25 Oregon schools

25 schools listed at least 1 case of a student or staff member infected with COVID-19 in this week's report from state health officials, up from six two weeks ago.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The number of COVID-19 cases at Oregon schools is on the rise.

When the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) first started releasing COVID-19 infections reported at Oregon schools as part of its weekly report two weeks ago, six schools had listed at least one case of a student or staff member infected with the coronavirus, with a total of 11 total cases reported.

Last week, the number was up to 14 schools and 32 total cases.

In the report that OHA released on Wednesday, the number of schools reporting COVID-19 cases rose to 25 and the number of total cases increased to 52.

The reporting only includes K-12 schools that are offering any form of in-person learning. Of the 25 schools listed this week, none have reported more than seven total infections:
