PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Health Authority announced Multnomah County’s first presumptive positive case of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The new case brings Oregon’s total to 15 cases in seven counties.

Currently, there are 2 presumptive cases of coronavirus in Jackson County, and 1 in Klamath county.

OHA says its agency and Multnomah County are working to identify any individuals who may have been in close contact with the person in the last 2 weeks.

The person who tested positive is being treated at Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

OHA says the person had no known contact with a confirmed case and had not traveled from a country where the virus is circulating, so the case is being investigated as a community-acquired case.
