Oregon — like neighboring Washington — has moved past the point of complete containment for the novel coronavirus. That means government officials and health care providers must enter a new, more serious phase of testing and treatment if they hope to spare the state's residents from the worst of COVID-19's effects.

So far, Oregon has been slow to act. The state has been less than forthcoming with information the public needs, such as basic facts about the places where the 15 Oregonians (as of Tuesday) who are known to have the virus have visited.
