Reopening Clackamas County

Clackamas County is in Phase I. Also, Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties will be considered as a single unit for reopening decisions.

On July 22, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced new requirements for face coverings and limits on social get-togethers. On July 24, Oregon’s face covering requirement was expanded to apply to children ages 5 and older. Face coverings are also now required when exercising indoors, along with outdoors when physically distancing isn’t an option. Restaurants and bars must also close by 10 p.m. statewide. It is mandated that venues such as movie theaters and restaurants must limit their indoor capacity to 100 people (including staff).

We are continuing to serve you and working to move into Phase II reopening. Check back here for our progress in meeting the criteria for Phase II. See the dashboard below to see where we stand.
