"We feel pain and sorrow for our neighbors who've lost their lives to COVID-19 and the families they leave behind," OHA Director Patrick Allen said. "And each death we record is a reminder that COVID-19 is a life-threatening virus that's easy to catch, a warning that more Oregonians will die if we don't contain it and a call to action to stop its spread."
There have been three pandemic-related deaths in Columbia County; one in early August, one in October and one in November.
