OR authorities link 2 virus outbreaks to one person

And guess what? These COVID-19 clusters did not spring from a "super spreader event".

There were 19 new cases of COVID-19 and two new COVID-related deaths added to Warren County's totals on Thursday.

According to the source OR authorities link 2 virus outbreaks to one person. Instead, public health officials say a single person who went to work sick sparked the spread through "super spreader actions".

OR is getting close to surpassing the 110,000 mark for coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic, as the more than 1,400 new cases today takes the state's total up to 109,725 cases. The death toll from one of the outbreak sparked by the infected worker accounts for almost one-fifth of the county's reported deaths since the start of the pandemic.

In addition, the OHA reported there now 492 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, which is 20 more than Saturday, which was the same as Friday. Last week, the state announced that Douglas County is considered an "extreme risk" designation.

Although many offices closed during the early stages of the pandemic leading to many employees working from home for months to curb the spread of the virus, as the pandemic has continues to drag on, some offices reopened which saw the spread increase once again.

The infected person's place of employment, or when they went to work while sick has not been revealed.

Officials have not revealed where the ill person who went to work was employed.

Despite those efforts, the virus has still spread. Courthouses and city halls have shut down as cases spread among government employees.

Officials are advising anybody who believes they may be sick to stay home as a precaution.
