COVID-19 in Clackamas County

Main Content

Masking

The general indoor mask mandate ended on March 12. Outside of a few excepted areas (i.e. healthcare settings, jail, etc.), masks will be optional and not required. 

Individuals should choose whether or not to mask based on their individual risk assessment. We encourage those who are immunocompromised or with underlying health conditions, as well as those living with people at higher risk, to continue wearing a mask around others. Please honor and support individuals’ personal health decisions.

Quarantine and Contact Tracing

Additionally, contact tracing and quarantine was paused on March 12 for the general population, including K-12 and childcare settings. This means that quarantine is no longer recommended within the general population for exposure to someone who has COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status. 

Isolation guidelines for people who have tested positive for COVID-19 or who have symptoms will remain the same. If you need resources to isolate at home, there is help available at this page.

Why?

These changes were driven by the receding Omicron surge, along with data from Oregon Health and Science University showing an estimated 86% of the state’s population currently has been vaccinated, infected or a combination of the two, protecting them against severe infections in the coming months.
