As of this morning, there are 733 Oregonians hospitalized with severe cases of COVID-19, including 185 in the ICU,” Brown posted on her Twitter on Friday.

“I cannot emphasize enough the seriousness of this situation, which is why I am deploying up to 1,500 @OregonGuard members to support hospitals across the state,” she added.

As of last week, 73 percent of ICU beds were filled in Oregon, according to data from Johns Hopkins University

There will be 500 Oregon National Guard members deployed initially and up to 1,500 will be available as needed, the governor said Friday.

The governor implored residents to get the coronavirus vaccine to help combat the surge in cases. She also urged masks in public areas.

“If you have been waiting to get vaccinated, go do it today. Vaccines are safe, effective and widely available. And when you go out in public, wear a mask. Masks are a simple and effective way for all of us to help slow the spread of COVID-19,” Brown said Friday.

The state has 57 percent of its residents fully vaccinated against the virus. 

Most of the new cases are from the delta variant, which has caused hospital beds around the country to fill up.

“The harsh, and frustrating reality is that the delta variant has changed everything,” Brown said. “Delta is highly contagious, and we must take action.”

The governor is also requesting support and funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help deal with the rise in cases.
