On May 7, 2020 Oregon Governor Kate Brown released information regarding the easing of restrictions that have been in place during the COVID-19 crisis. The Governor indicated that a phased, stepped reopening of some businesses will likely begin in certain less-affected Counties in the next few weeks.  Please refer to the Governor’s Website for full information.

It is important to note that reopening will not mean business as usual.  We are still in the early stages of the crisis.  Many activities, concerts, and events simply may not be possible until the crisis is over.  Businesses may be asked to re-close at a later date if the situation changes.

Steps must be taken to mitigate risk. Businesses must comply with Oregon health regulations and strictly follow best practices of continued social distancing, utilization of masks, hand & surface sanitizing, shielding for checkout personnel, no group interactions, etc.
