EASTERN OREGON – Even though Oregon’s COVID-19 cases have declined, the officials from the Oregon Health Authority are nervous about an uptick in cases this Labor Day weekend.  The director of OHA Patrick Allen suggests limiting the gatherings and wearing a face mask if you cannot maintain a 6-foot distance.  

Allen went on and said, “We are headed in the right direction, but we need to keep the pressure on to further slow the spread.”  As of Monday, Union County currently has 419 confirmed cases, Baker County with 70, and Wallowa County at 22.
