Oregon’s first presumptive case of COVID-19 was reported on February 28, 2020. Since that time, health care teams have worked nonstop to care for patients infected with the coronavirus. These efforts have intensified over the past few weeks, as cases of COVID-19 cases increases exponentially due to the highly contagious delta variant. Their dedication and sacrifice have helped save thousands of lives, and Oregon’s elected officials, local business leaders and community volunteers express their gratitude in the following videos.
