Many parts of Oregon will reopen businesses, personal services, recreation and childcare in phases. However, many closures have not ended yet.

Together, we have been able to slow the spread of COVID-19, but the pandemic is not over. We will be living with this virus for a long time. We must continue our efforts to slow the spread and take care of each other until we have a vaccine and better treatment.
Stay Home, Save Lives
Staying home is the best way to protect yourself, your family and community. It helps to protect those at risk for severe illness. It also keeps our healthcare facilities open to those who need them.
As restrictions on activities and businesses are gradually lifted, everyone should continue to stay home as much as possible to keep the virus from spreading.
- Go out only for essentials (groceries, medical care)
- Limit trips and stay close to home
- Avoid unnecessary contact with people you don’t live with
- Wear cloth face coverings when going out»
People at risk for severe illness (older adults, underlying conditions) must still stay home.
The virus that causes COVID-19 passes easily from person to person. To stay healthy:
- Stay at least 6 feet from others
- Prevent the spread of germs by washing hands often and covering your cough
- Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces
What To Do If You Are Sick
If you start to feel sick—especially with a fever and cough—stay home and do the things you normally do to feel better. Sleep, rest, and drink plenty of fluids. There is no specific medicine for COVID-19.
- Steps to take if you are sick or think you may be infected with coronavirus
- Check your risk for COVID-19 to help you decide if you should seek medical care.
- If you need to seek care, call your doctor before going to the clinic. They will tell you what to do next.
If someone gets sick with COVID-19, public health workers use “contact tracing” to find out who else may have been exposed.
