PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Governor Brown said if she doesn’t see improvement in slowing the spread of COVID-19 across the state, she will be implementing more restrictions.

During a press conference on Friday morning, Brown threatened that the restrictions could be on businesses, like bars and restaurants, as well as travelers coming in from hotspots. She said she is considering adding the restrictions by the end of the month but there is no hard line for that date.

“We’re doing well, but we have to do better,” she said.

“We are on the right track, now we need to step on the gas,” Oregon Health Authority Director Patrick Allen said during the press conference.

State Epidemiologist Dr. Dean Sidelinger also spoke at the press conference, outlining various scenarios over the next four weeks. He said all the modeling shows we are headed in the right direction.

“Oregonians have flattened the curve again, but we are still months away from driving infection rates to levels where we can open schools,” Sidelinger said.

“We are not close to keeping the infection rate at a level we need to open schools across Oregon.”

Sidelinger said the most important data point is how many people an infected person passes the infection onto. Right now, that number is 1. The state’s goal is to reduce that number to .75.

Late Thursday afternoon Brown updated the state’s coronavirus County Watch List. The big changes in the Watch List are that Marion and Wasco counties are no longer on the list — but Multnomah County remains. Being on the Watch List lets the state prioritize resources and help, increases monitoring and deploys more technical assistance, officials said.

There are now 8 counties on the Watch List: Baker, Hood River, Jackson, Jefferson, Malheur, Morrow, Multnomah, and Umatilla.

“I want to applaud county officials and community members in Marion and Wasco Counties for their efforts in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in their communities,” Brown said in a statement. “This is yet another example of how we can combat this disease by working together.”
