The Lighthouse Pentecostal Church stands in Union County, Ore., date not known. A COVID-19 outbreak in Union County was reported this week, where 99 people tested positive, and an additional 119 people were confirmed positive for coronavirus Tuesday. Officials said a number of the cases are associated with the church.

SALEM, Ore. - A church in rural northeastern Oregon is now the epicenter of the state's largest coronavirus outbreak, as 236 people tested positive for the disease, authorities said Tuesday.

The outbreak also led to Oregon's second consecutive record-setting daily case count.

"I think generally we are seeing increasing numbers, which is what we expected with reopening," said Thomas Jeanne, the deputy state health officer and deputy state epidemiologist.
