Building a
Safe & Strong Oregon Governor Kate Brown

As we begin the process of reopening and building a safe and strong Oregon, I again ask Oregonians to come together and be smart. Reopening any part of our state comes with risk.

This virus is still very dangerous, and it still poses a great threat. Please follow the safety measures we are putting in place to help these businesses reopen — we’ve had the best doctors and public health experts guide us on how to safely and gradually reopen Oregon. It’s up to us to follow their advice if we want to keep Oregon safe and strong.

Statewide

For all of Oregon, regardless of what phase a county is in, face coverings are required for ages 5 and up in indoor public spaces and outdoors anywhere physical distancing isn’t possible, including while exercising. All indoor social get-togethers are capped at 10 people. Restaurants and bars close at 10pm. Capacity limit for restaurants, gyms, venues (e.g. concert halls, movie theaters) is maximum of 100 people indoors, including staff. There are additional guidelines statewide for retail, public transit, childcare, summer camps and summer school, outdoor recreation, and more.



Baseline Stay Home

Stay home as much as possible. Businesses must have employees work from home if possible. Indoor and outdoor social gatherings are capped at 10 people. Civic, cultural, and faith-based gatherings are capped at 25. Grocery stores, retail, pharmacies, banks and credit unions, and gas stations are all open. Restaurants are take-out/delivery only. Must close: gyms, playgrounds, malls, pools, entertainment facilities, youth sports, spas, sports courts, and personal care services like salons/barbers.



Phase 1

Includes limited reopening of personal services like salons and barbers, gyms, and malls, and restaurants and bars open for in-person service until 10pm. Indoor social get-togethers are capped at 10 people with physical distancing. Cultural, civic, and faith gatherings are capped at 50 people with physical distancing for indoors or outdoors.



Phase 2

After 21 days in Phase 1, counties that meet specific prerequisites may be able to enter Phase 2. Counties with more than 100 cases must have their case counts reduced to 100 cases or less per 100,000 people per week. Wider reopening includes recreational sports, venues like movie theaters, bowling alleys, and arcades, and increased in-office work. Indoor social get-togethers are capped at 10 people with physical distancing.



Phase 3

Mass gatherings such as major concerts or sporting events with live audiences will require a reliable COVID-19 treatment or vaccine.




County Status




Key:

indicates the county's current reopening phase
mask icon indicates that face coverings are required for indoor public spaces and outdoor public spaces
where physical distancing isn’t possible
indicates the county is on the "Watch List". Counties are placed on the Watch List when COVID-19 is spreading quickly and public health officials cannot trace that spread to specific sources—creating a potentially dangerous dynamic. Metrics include when there is a sporadic case rate of 50 or more per 100,000 people in the last two weeks and the county has had more than five sporadic cases in the last two weeks (sporadic cases are those that cannot be traced to a source; they indicate community spread). Counties remain on the Watch List for a minimum of three weeks and until their sporadic case rates drop below these thresholds.

Note: If your county has submitted a plan and you do not see it listed here, it is currently being processed for review and may need to be revised to meet our current application requirements before it is accepted as complete. The Governor’s Office will be contacting county leadership about what additional information we may need for an application to be processed.

Applications listed as Under Review are currently being reviewed by the Governor's Office and Oregon Health Authority to determine whether a county meets the criteria.
