Washington County to Move Back to “High Risk”

Governor Kate Brown announced  that Washington County will be moving back to “High Risk” level, effective this Friday, April 23rd, due to the rise in cases of COVID-19.

The move will be effective April 23 through May 6, and will be re-evaluated May 4th. As case counts and hospitalizations increase and counties qualify for higher risk levels, increased safety measures for businesses and activities will resume.

For more information about what this means for your business, please refer to OHA’s Sector Guidance Chart or visit the state’s website for county-by-county information about risk status and guidance. 

A complete list of counties and their associated risk levels is available here. Updates to Warning Week data and county risk levels will be posted to coronavirus.oregon.gov.
