58 more cases in Lane County; President Trump in hospital


Lane County Public Health reported 58 additional positive COVID-19 cases Friday, a one-day record.

Contact tracers on Friday gathered information about the new cases. Jason Davis, a spokesman for Lane County Public Health, said tracers found a majority came from college-age students, particularly 19- and 20-year-olds.
