The Oregon Health Authority’s complete guidance to businesses reopening is online.

Reopening Metrics

On Feb. 26, 2021, Clackamas County moved to the "Moderate risk" level.

    Our risk level    
Metric Lower risk Moderate risk High risk Extreme risk
Number of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 over 14 days
counties with 30,000 or more people
less than 50 50 to 99 100 to 199 200+
% test positivity over previous 14 days less than 5% 5 to 7% 8 to 9% 10%+

Below is a trend of our metrics.

1/31–2/13 129.4 4.5%

Activities are allowed or limited based on the county’s risk category. Please visit the Governor’s website for the latest information on activities that may be limited by our current rating.

Don’t stop now!

What we’re doing now — wearing face coverings and keeping our distance, among others — is working. This is no time to stop protecting ourselves and others!

We can take this incremental step toward reopening because YOU did the hard work. But that trend is fragile. The virus is still circulating widely in our community, vaccine supply remains limited and most of our population remains unvaccinated.

Please continue to practice safety measures to protect our most vulnerable residents

If the county’s metrics worsen, then the old restrictions will have to be reintroduced. Nobody wants that!

  • Wear a face covering
  • Limit gatherings to small groups
  • Keep at least 6 feet away from others outside your household
  • Wash your hands
  • Stay home if you’re sick

None of us is safe until all of us are safe.
