The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has confirmed Oregon’s first case of COVID-19 coronavirus case in Washington County.
Oregon Health Authority announced it had a presumptive case on Friday but said the findings would have to be verified through the CDC.
The case involved a person living in Washington County who works for the Lake Oswego School District.
Gov. Kate Brown announced that the presumptive positive test results in this case had been confirmed by the CDC in a YouTube video on Monday.
Brown in the video said there have been no new cases reported in the past 24 hours.
“We’ve had seventeen tests that have come back negative and we’re waiting the results of eight more,” Brown said.
