Contact: Laura Wendel, COVID-19 Case Investigation Unit Manager (laura.a.wendel@dhsoha.state.or.us)

Request: Please share with CCOs (to share with provider networks).

The OHA COVID-19 Hotline is a statewide resource for people who test positive for COVID-19. People with positive cases can call in whether or not they tested positive at home, in a lab, or to get guidance on a household case. People can call to receive quarantine and isolation guidance, how to inform close contacts, and connect with wraparound services in their county. The hotline is staffed by case investigators and previous contact tracers. On the hotline website, there is also a survey link where people can complete basic information about their case. That information is sent automatically to OHA.


See the “Did you test Positive for COVID?” page here: https://govstatus.egov.com/or-oha-covid-19-positive-test?utm_source=OHA&utm_medium=egov_redirect&utm_campaign=https%3A%2F%2Foregon.gov%2Fpositivecovidtest

Please share widely. OHA is especially wanting to make sure providers have this information.

Request: Please share with CCO staff working on suicide prevention.

The Oregon Zero Suicide Academy will be held March 30 and 31, 2022.

Using the Zero Suicide framework, participants learn how to incorporate best and promising practices into their organizations and processes to improve care and safety for individuals at risk. Zero Suicide faculty provide both interactive presentations and small group sessions, collaborating with participants to develop organization-specific action plans. Priority will be given to health systems that are working with adults 25 and older or across the lifespan given SAMHSA funding priorities. If capacity allows, systems focused on supporting youth age 24 and under will be eligible to participate.
