Our opinion: Oregon isn't a COVID-19 hotspot, and we all need to work to keep it that way.

This chart from the Oregon Health Authority shows the number of Oregonians who have been identified as COVID-19 cases.

The new stats on COVID-19 infections in Oregon are staggering. The state crossed the 1,000-per-day threshold on Thursday, Nov. 12, with no end in sight.

Gov. Kate Brown on Friday released a plan effective Nov. 18 to Dec. 2 to slow down the rate of infections before Oregon becomes a national hotspot. They will last until Dec. 18 in Multnomah County and likely in Washington County because of their higher infection rates.
