Most Oregon counties can start to ease COVID-19 restrictions today (5/15) – but even as some communities prepare to reopen, it’s not quite a return to “business as usual.” Gov. Kate Brown has outlined a multi-stage approach for reopening the state. Here’s what you need to know.
Which counties are allowed to reopen?
How were they chosen?
If I don’t live in one of the counties that were approved for Phase 1 reopening, does anything change for me?
Can I hold parties now? Are any gatherings of any size allowed, indoors or outdoors, for performing arts?
Can sporting events, like impromptu soccer matches or scheduled team practices, resume?
Will summer camps for kids be allowed?
Am I required to wear a mask when I go shopping or when I go out in public?
Can I eat a meal in a restaurant again?
