Shelter In Place

68831

No, not even close. There are no curfews and a person’s movements are not restricted under the Governor’s Executive Order. While details are offered in the order relating to social distancing, specific business closures and non-essential social gatherings — Oregonian’s movements are generally unrestricted.

68831

If you are an essential services employee, you are allowed to travel to and from work. These individuals include those who work for grocery stores and delivery services such as UPS and FedEx.

68831

Even with the Stay at Home order, donating blood is considered an essential service. Keep your appointment or schedule one at RedCrossBlood.org.

68831

You can exercise outside as long as you stay 6 feet away from others. You can still walk your dog, jog, and bike in your neighborhood.

68831

Governor Brown’s order allows bars and restaurants to remain open for delivery and takeout only. You cannot sit down and eat at a restaurant.

68831

At this time Governor Brown has not issued an end date for the “Stay at Home” order.

68831

The businesses that are allowed to remain open under Governor Brown’s Order are:

  • grocery stores
  • banks,
  • pharmacies, 
  • bars, 
  • restaurants (takeout/delivery only), 
  • some other stores (stay six feet away from others)
68831

State parks, playgrounds, campgrounds, pools, and skate parks are all closed.​

68831

No. The Governor’s Executive Order closes certain businesses, outlined in section (2). These businesses reflect operations that would make close contact difficult or impossible to avoid. Officers are not asking or looking for any type of special paperwork from your employer.

68831

No. There is no special documentation or placards for people going to work or permitted activities.

68831

Not for violation of the Governor’s Executive Order, which specifically outlines efforts to avoid large gatherings — not restrict the movement of Oregonians. If, however, you are committing a traffic violation or crime that would be enforced independent of the order, you may be stopped, like any other day.

68831

No, traffic is moving freely within Oregon and our border states. There are no roadblocks or restrictions of vehicle movement. Washington State is operating under a similar executive order from their Governor, so Oregonians should be aware of these provisions when traveling in their state.

68831

While the order prohibits the public from congregating at a closed business, the employer may still have work to do on site. As long as employees are not conducting business that is prohibited by the Execu- tive Order, it is okay to still be at the worksite. No “passes” or paperwork is required.

68831

Yes, generally. Some rest areas are connected to parks, which are currently closed to comply with the Executive Order.

68831

People that violate the Governor’s Order in an Emergency Declaration could be arrested or cited, which is a C Misdemeanor — the lowest level of criminal conduct designation. All Oregon law enforcement are united on the premise that police action is extremely undesirable and we hope to educate Oregonians if congregating in violation of the Governor’s Order. Citation or arrest would be an extreme last resort if a person failed to comply with the lawful direction of a police officer.

68831

Police know our children don’t often take their parent’s advice and may ignore direction when away. Like adults found to be congregating in a location, officers will likely approach the youths and educate them on the order. Citations and arrests are extremely unlikely, reserved for only the most extreme circumstances.

68831

Yes. Oregonians can still recreate outdoors, if their recreational activity involves non-contact with others and they can maintain appropriate social distancing- which is defined as 6 feet or more from others. Oregonians and visitors to our state should be aware most campgrounds and boat ramps are closed, so you should research your plans before recreating.

68831

No. The level of this violation is not for reporting police, fire or medical emergencies through 911. People may choose to self-educate their fellow Oregonians or if a large gathering is noted, they may call their respective police agency’s non-emergency number.

68831

Price gouging — the practice of charging extra high prices for essential items in times of high-demand — is prohibited during times of crisis.

We are cautioning all Clackamas County residents to be aware of unusually high prices for consumer goods like hand sanitizer, vitamins, toilet paper and other consumer goods due to COVID-19. The county’s latest update to the emergency declaration prohibits price gouging for goods and services.

If you see price gouging in Oregon, please call the state’s Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-877-9392 .

When it comes to online marketplaces, you may need to report price gouging directly to the selling platform. Oregon’s attorney general was one of 33 who co-wrote letters to Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Facebook and Craigslist on March 25 asking them to crack down on overpriced items.

68941

Please be aware that there are scams out there preying on people’s fear of COVID-19. Please do not trust anyone calling or emailing you asking for your personal information. COVID-19-related complaints should be reported to the National Center for Disaster Fraud Hotline at 1-866-720-5721 or email at disaster@leo.gov.

68941

No! We want to remind everyone that a person’s ethnicity, language or association with a country or region does not mean they carry this virus. As long as they have not recently spent time in an area where COVID-19 has spread, or have not been in close contact with an individual with a suspected or confirmed case of the virus, they are at no greater risk of carrying or spreading COVID-19 than anyone else.

Stigmatizing certain groups based on rumors, false information and discrimination creates unnecessary fear and anxiety, hurting the whole community. In times of fear, we urge common sense and respect. In times of unknowns, we urge people to spread facts, not fear.

In addition, any discrimination incident that may be motivated by another person’s race, color, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity is considered a hate and bias incident. If you witness or experience this kind of discrimination, please report it to the Oregon Department of Justice online or by calling 1-844-924-BIAS (2427) so the Oregon Department of Justice can track the incident. For emergency assistance, dial 911.

68941

Currently, there is no evidence of transmission of COVID-19 from imported goods.

Generally, coronaviruses do not survive well on surfaces so the risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks is thought to be extremely low. Coronaviruses are spread most often by small droplets of mucus from the nose and throat.

68941

At this time, all available information indicates that your pet cannot contract COVID-19. As of March 10, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC) has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19.

67761

Limit contact with your pet and wash your hands before and after you touch them. We understand this may be very hard on both you and your pet. When you are kissing, snuggling or touching your pet, you may leave germs on the pet that could then be picked up by another person. If possible, a healthy household member should care for the pet while the sick person avoids contact.

67761

The North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District made the decision to close Stonecreek Golf Course out of concern for our course, users, staff and stakeholders who access the course on a regular basis during operating hours.

While it is an open-air venue, that does not minimize the need to restrict gatherings and ensure the proper cleaning of equipment and other publicly used facilities, that is needed to slow the spread of COVID-19

We apologize for the inconvenience and will be open when we get the go-ahead from public health authorities.

Oregonians can still recreate outdoors, if their recreational activity involves non-contact with others and they can maintain appropriate social distancing- which is defined as 6 feet or more from others. Oregonians and visitors to our state should be aware most campgrounds and boat ramps are closed, so you should research your plans before recreating.

68831

No. The level of this violation is not for reporting police, fire or medical emergencies through 911. People may choose to self-educate their fellow Oregonians or if a large gathering is noted, they may call their respective police agency’s non-emergency number.

68831

Price gouging — the practice of charging extra high prices for essential items in times of high-demand — is prohibited during times of crisis.

We are cautioning all Clackamas County residents to be aware of unusually high prices for consumer goods like hand sanitizer, vitamins, toilet paper and other consumer goods due to COVID-19. The county’s latest update to the emergency declaration prohibits price gouging for goods and services.

If you see price gouging in Oregon, please call the state’s Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-877-9392 .

When it comes to online marketplaces, you may need to report price gouging directly to the selling platform. Oregon’s attorney general was one of 33 who co-wrote letters to Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Facebook and Craigslist on March 25 asking them to crack down on overpriced items.

68941

Please be aware that there are scams out there preying on people’s fear of COVID-19. Please do not trust anyone calling or emailing you asking for your personal information. COVID-19-related complaints should be reported to the National Center for Disaster Fraud Hotline at 1-866-720-5721 or email at disaster@leo.gov.

68941

No! We want to remind everyone that a person’s ethnicity, language or association with a country or region does not mean they carry this virus. As long as they have not recently spent time in an area where COVID-19 has spread, or have not been in close contact with an individual with a suspected or confirmed case of the virus, they are at no greater risk of carrying or spreading COVID-19 than anyone else.

Stigmatizing certain groups based on rumors, false information and discrimination creates unnecessary fear and anxiety, hurting the whole community. In times of fear, we urge common sense and respect. In times of unknowns, we urge people to spread facts, not fear.

In addition, any discrimination incident that may be motivated by another person’s race, color, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity is considered a hate and bias incident. If you witness or experience this kind of discrimination, please report it to the Oregon Department of Justice online or by calling 1-844-924-BIAS (2427) so the Oregon Department of Justice can track the incident. For emergency assistance, dial 911.

68941

Currently, there is no evidence of transmission of COVID-19 from imported goods.

Generally, coronaviruses do not survive well on surfaces so the risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks is thought to be extremely low. Coronaviruses are spread most often by small droplets of mucus from the nose and throat.

68941

At this time, all available information indicates that your pet cannot contract COVID-19. As of March 10, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC) has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19.

67761

Limit contact with your pet and wash your hands before and after you touch them. We understand this may be very hard on both you and your pet. When you are kissing, snuggling or touching your pet, you may leave germs on the pet that could then be picked up by another person. If possible, a healthy household member should care for the pet while the sick person avoids contact.

The North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District made the decision to close Stonecreek Golf Course out of concern for our course, users, staff and stakeholders who access the course on a regular basis during operating hours.

While it is an open-air venue, that does not minimize the need to restrict gatherings and ensure the proper cleaning of equipment and other publicly used facilities, that is needed to slow the spread of COVID-19

We apologize for the inconvenience and will be open when we get the go-ahead from public health authorities.

The declaration prohibits any place of lodging within the county from discriminating against anyone possessing a valid voucher subsidized by the county or any county contractor.

69116

This was put into effect March 24 as part of an extended emergency declaration approved by County Commissioners. Clients are already receiving vouchers and are being placed in hotels.

69116

An at risk clients is anyone who is homeless and may have underlying medical conditions. The person’s age is not a determining factor.

69116

The guests are expected to:

  • Clean up after themselves
  • Request additional linens when needed
  • Not allow guests in the room
  • Follow lodging providers rules
69116

We are negotiating rates with lodging providers individually.

69116

The guest is responsible, just as any hotel guest would be responsible for damages.

69116

The hotel operator, as they would with any guest.

Hotels may not request exemptions.

Closures

In an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the community, Clackamas County is closing most  facilities and canceling programs and events. For a complete list of closures, visit www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/closures

67806

No, not even close. There are no curfews and a person’s movements are not restricted under the Governor’s Executive Order. While details are offered in the order relating to social distancing, specific business closures and non-essential social gatherings — Oregonian’s movements are generally unrestricted.

68831

If you are an essential services employee, you are allowed to travel to and from work. These individuals include those who work for grocery stores and delivery services such as UPS and FedEx.

68831

Even with the Stay at Home order, donating blood is considered an essential service. Keep your appointment or schedule one at RedCrossBlood.org.

68831

You can exercise outside as long as you stay 6 feet away from others. You can still walk your dog, jog, and bike in your neighborhood.

68831

Governor Brown’s order allows bars and restaurants to remain open for delivery and takeout only. You cannot sit down and eat at a restaurant.

68831

At this time Governor Brown has not issued an end date for the “Stay at Home” order.

68831

The businesses that are allowed to remain open under Governor Brown’s Order are:

  • grocery stores
  • banks,
  • pharmacies, 
  • bars, 
  • restaurants (takeout/delivery only), 
  • some other stores (stay six feet away from others)
68831

State parks, playgrounds, campgrounds, pools, and skate parks are all closed.​

68831

No. The Governor’s Executive Order closes certain businesses, outlined in section (2). These businesses reflect operations that would make close contact difficult or impossible to avoid. Officers are not asking or looking for any type of special paperwork from your employer.

68831

No. There is no special documentation or placards for people going to work or permitted activities.

68831

Not for violation of the Governor’s Executive Order, which specifically outlines efforts to avoid large gatherings — not restrict the movement of Oregonians. If, however, you are committing a traffic violation or crime that would be enforced independent of the order, you may be stopped, like any other day.

68831

No, traffic is moving freely within Oregon and our border states. There are no roadblocks or restrictions of vehicle movement. Washington State is operating under a similar executive order from their Governor, so Oregonians should be aware of these provisions when traveling in their state.

68831

While the order prohibits the public from congregating at a closed business, the employer may still have work to do on site. As long as employees are not conducting business that is prohibited by the Execu- tive Order, it is okay to still be at the worksite. No “passes” or paperwork is required.

68831

Yes, generally. Some rest areas are connected to parks, which are currently closed to comply with the Executive Order.

68831

People that violate the Governor’s Order in an Emergency Declaration could be arrested or cited, which is a C Misdemeanor — the lowest level of criminal conduct designation. All Oregon law enforcement are united on the premise that police action is extremely undesirable and we hope to educate Oregonians if congregating in violation of the Governor’s Order. Citation or arrest would be an extreme last resort if a person failed to comply with the lawful direction of a police officer.

68831

Police know our children don’t often take their parent’s advice and may ignore direction when away. Like adults found to be congregating in a location, officers will likely approach the youths and educate them on the order. Citations and arrests are extremely unlikely, reserved for only the most extreme circumstances.

68831
