Reopening Oregon

The current statewide framework for COVID-19 safety measures is based on four risk levels: Extreme, High, Moderate and Lower. Regulations and restrictions for activities are based on each county’s risk level.

Washington County is currently in the “High Risk” category, which will be evaluated every two weeks.

As a “High Risk” county, the following is guidance for Washington County as it relates to our industry:

  • Eating and drinking establishments limited to 25% capacity or 50 people indoors
  • Outdoor dining limited to  75 people maximum
  • Tables limited to 6 people
  • Indoor recreation and entertainment limited to 25% capacity or 50 people, whichever is smaller and indoor full contact sports are prohibited
  • Retail is limited to 50% capacity (curbside pickup encouraged)
  • Outdoor recreation and entertainment (including hiking trails, campsites, gardens) limited to 15% capacity. Outdoor full-contact sports allowed.
  • Personal services (i.e. hair salons) are allowed.
  • Remote work is recommended if possible.

In addition to specific regulations for businesses, face coverings are required in all public buildings and outdoor spaces where you can not maintain physical distancing from people outside your household.

Reopening some businesses does not mean back to business as usual. Large gatherings are still prohibited and residents are still being asked to stay home whenever possible.
