“Oregon is on a steep and strong slope of rising coronavirus cases,” OHA Director Patrick Allen said Sunday. “But we are not powerless against this virus. Because it depends on us to slow down the spread. Your choices make a difference.
“Local health officials in all parts of the state have investigated outbreaks that started with gatherings that seemed innocent at the time, but which led to many people getting sick and in some cases hospitalizations and deaths.
This Thanksgiving, cancel the plans you have to celebrate indoors with large groups of family and friends. The safest, wisest, and most caring way to protect the people you love is to keep your Thanksgiving dinner small and limited to no more than one other household next to your own. Keep the holiday a time to remember, not a time to regret. ”
