PORTLAND, Ore. — There are 19 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 1,957 the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
Oregon Health Authority reported 707 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today bringing the state total to 142,416.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 25,500 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 19,867 doses were administered on Jan. 29 and 5,633 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Jan. 29.
Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).
Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 407,869 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 665,325 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated today.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 280, which is eight fewer than yesterday. There are 67 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is one fewer than yesterday.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

OHA scheduled time to perform server and file migration maintenance on its data management system known as the Oregon Pandemic Emergency Response Application (OPERA). OPERA serves as the state’s database for COVID-19 cases.
OPERA will be down from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. today, Saturday, Jan. 30. The work being done means that OHA’s Health Information Center will not be reporting information on COVID-19 cases and deaths on Sunday. We may see an increase in the total number of cases reported on Monday as laboratory results that were reported on Saturday will not be processed until Sunday.
OHA’s daily media releases will return on Monday, Feb. 1.
In addition to OPERA, the Oregon COVID-19 Reporting Portal was down from 10—11 a.m. on Saturday to allow for server maintenance to take place. Providers were unable to submit test results in the portal during that time.
