PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported 230 new COVID-19 cases and seven more deaths on Tuesday.

There have been 208,446 known COVID-19 cases in the state since the start of the pandemic.

The state will reopen by Wednesday, June 30. That means all state COVID-19 health and safety restrictions -- including the statewide mask mandate, physical distancing requirements and capacity limits -- will be lifted. 

Gov. Kate Brown had originally set a goal of vaccinating 70% of adult residents before lifting restrictions. Last week, she announced the state would open no later than Wednesday even if the state didn't meet that goal. 

Vaccinations

Oregon has administered 2,476,519 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,732.809 first and second doses of Moderna and 167,263 single doses of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine.
