Few cases of COVID-19 reported in the Estacada area
Data from the Oregon Health Association indicates that there have been fewer than nine cases of COVID-19 in the Estacada area.
According to information from the OHA released Tuesday, May 5, there have been no cases of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus in the 97022 ZIP code, which includes Eagle Creek. There have been fewer than nine cases within the 97023 ZIP code, which includes the city of Estacada.
ZIP codes with fewer than 10 cases were reported as having between one and nine infections.
Prior to this report, the OHA provided geographic breakdowns of the COVID-19 outbreak by county.
In Clackamas County, there have been 218 cases and 99 residents have recovered from the illness.
Across the state, there have been 2,742 cases of COVID-19 and 109 deaths since the outbreak began.
"The number of people with positive tests per week continues to gradually decline, while the number of people who have been tested has increased significantly," the OHA weekly report stated. "Further, fewer people are hospitalized for COVID-19, and fewer people are requiring ICU care or ventilators. All of these signs point to the effectiveness of the stay-at-home measures implemented by Gov. Brown on March 23, and the sacrifices Oregonians are making every day to reduce the spread of the coronavirus."
