Correction: The OHA said it reported Oregon’s 785th COVID-19 death was an 85-year-old woman from Washington County who tested positive Nov. 9. The woman is not dead, OHA reported Thursday and the number of deaths in Oregon due to COVID-19 has been adjusted to correct the error. OHA said it regrets the mistake.
