COVID-19 cases to be listed by ZIP code

Starting today, OHA will begin posting COVID-19 case data by ZIP code and by county. This will provide a more granular, community-level look at the disease trends in Oregon.

To protect privacy, if a ZIP code’s population is less than 1,000, the ZIP codes will be combined and reported in the aggregate case count. And if there are fewer than 10 cases in a ZIP code it will be listed as "1-9."
