Announced November 13: due to a surge in COVID-19 cases, the entire State of Oregon has been placed on a 2-week freeze, effective immediately for individuals and starting November 18 for businesses. Some counties, including Multnomah, will remain on the freeze for at least 4 weeks, until December 16. 

During the freeze, the following outdoor sites will be closed:

  • Zoos

  • Gardens

  • Aquariums

  • Outdoor entertainment activities

  • Outdoor pools

 See the freeze requirements >>

Most parks and trails are open where there’s enough space to recreate safely. However, some other closures have not ended yet.

Some playgrounds and ball courts remain open. Overnight camping (in season) is available in some state parks and on public lands.

Because many parks are still closed, you should check before heading out.

  • Bring and wear face coverings
  • Wash hands often and bring hand sanitizer
  • Stay local
  • Avoid crowded spaces and trails
  • Keep at least 6 feet away others not part of your household
  • Outdoor games with those you live with are okay

On Trails

  • Announce your presence to others and step aside to let others pass
  • Keep 6 feet from others. If that's not possible, go someplace else.
