Oregon will be placed on a two-week “freeze” as a new measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the state. The freeze limits restaurants to takeout only, retail capacity to 75 percent and faith gatherings and other indoor crowds to 25 people. Gyms, indoor recreation facilities, museums, zoos, gardens and outdoor entertainment facilities must close.
“Since I announced a Two-Week Pause one week ago, we are seeing an alarming spike in both cases and hospitalizations,” said Governor Brown in a press release. “The virus is spreading in the community and, every day, it is infecting more and more Oregonians. This situation is dangerous and our hospitals have been sounding the alarms. If we want to give Oregon a fighting chance, we must take further measures to flatten the curve and save lives. I know this is hard, and we are weary. But, we are trying to stop this ferocious virus from quickly spreading far and wide. And in Oregon, we actually can do this.
While Washington County is under a “pause” November 11-25, the new “freeze” order is effected statewide. The freeze is in effect across Oregon November 18-December 2, but may be longer in counties with higher case counts. Multnomah County will be frozen for four weeks.
The Two-Week Freeze measures include:
