EUGENE, Ore. -- The University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations released new data that shows Oregon could start easing social distancing measures starting May 25.
The data shows Oregon's deaths per day is projected to continue in a downward trend. Starting May 25, the data shows the containment strategy phase. This means social distancing measures can start being relaxed but there must be sufficient testing, contact tracing, isolation, and still limitations on gathering sizes.
Another graph shows the total number of deaths in Oregon is now projected to be at 131 by Aug. 4. This number can change depending on if Oregonians continue to follow current social distancing measures and the stay-at-home order.
Gov. Kate Brown announced last Tuesday her plans to reopen the state. She did not give a hard date on when the state will reopen. The governor has the final say on when Oregon can start the reopening process.
