Updated July 2, 2020

Governor Brown’s latest executive order outlines a plan to re-open the economy in phases. It encourages businesses to reopen carefully, and to continue healthy practices to stay safe.

Oregon’s gradual reopening does not mean the COVID-19 pandemic is over. Businesses that reopen must:

  • Continue physical distancing measures
  • Require employees to wear face coverings
  • Allow telework whenever possible

Currently Open

Multnomah County is in Phase 1 of reopening. See what’s open»

    Face Coverings

    As of July 1, face coverings are required in indoor public spaces in Oregon. Employees, volunteers and contractors must wear face coverings even when working behind a plexiglass barrier.

    This requirement does not apply to children under 12 and people with a medical condition or disability that prevents them from wearing a face covering
