Major center ending Coronavirus monitoring

The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center will shut down its data-gathering program on the pandemic on Friday, March 10, 2023 — three years after it began. 

COVID-19 news in Oregon has been mostly upbeat in recent weeks. Oregon case numbers are improving, hospitalization rates are dropping, and the winter triple threat of COVID-19, flu and RSV has been retreating.

"We've made it through the worst," Oregon Health Officer Dean Sidelinger said Thursday, March 9. "Such optimism was not always easy to muster."
