December 3rd – Oregon has introduced a new framework of safety measures dependent on each county’s risk.

As of December 3rd Clatsop County is currently under the "High Risk" category of the new COVID-19 restrictions. See more information on the Oregon Health Authority website here.

The new framework has four risk levels based on counties' current COVID-19 spread. At each risk level — Extreme Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, and Lower Risk — health and safety measures and guidance for businesses and individuals will apply.

The framework is intended to establish sustainable protection measures for Oregonians in counties with rapid spread of COVID-19, while balancing the economic needs of families and businesses in the absence of a federal aid package.

On Monday, November 30, the state re-examined county data to determine which counties qualify for each risk level on December 3. 

Oregon counties that reduce their COVID-19 risk levels in coming weeks and months will be able to incrementally move to lower levels.

It’s important to note that there is no zero risk category. Until COVID-19 vaccines are widely available, health and safety precautions will remain in place so that schools, businesses and communities can reopen, and stay open.

At every risk level, to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks, Oregonians must continue to wear face coverings, watch their physical distance, wash hands, stay home when sick, and keep social get-togethers and gatherings small.

November 27th – After the statewide “two-week freeze” ends on December 2, Oregon will introduce a new framework of safety measures dependent on each county’s risk. The new framework has four risk levels based on counties' current COVID-19 spread, to take effect after the "freeze” ends next week. At each risk level — Extreme Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, and Lower Risk — health and safety measures and guidance for businesses and individuals will apply. The framework is intended to establish sustainable protection measures for Oregonians in counties with rapid spread of COVID-19, while balancing the economic needs of families and businesses in the absence of a federal aid package. At least 21 counties will likely initially fall in the “extreme risk” category. 

On Monday, November 30, the state will re-examine county data to determine which counties qualify for each risk level on December 3, following the end of the "freeze.” See the graphic below for information about what activities will be allowed, with health and safety protocols in place, in all risk levels. Oregon counties that reduce their COVID-19 risk levels in coming weeks and months will be able to incrementally move to lower levels.

It’s important to note that there is no zero risk category. Until COVID-19 vaccines are widely available, health and safety precautions will remain in place so that schools, businesses and communities can reopen, and stay open. At every risk level, to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks, Oregonians must continue to wear face coverings, watch their physical distance, wash hands, stay home when sick, and keep social get-togethers and gatherings small.

– West Coast states issue COVID-19 travel advisories - Oregon Travel Advisory 11/13/2020 full details HERE.

Oregon joined Washington and California in announcing a joint “travel advisory.” While all three states are urging people to avoid unnecessary travel, they’re also asking that people who visit — or return home from another state — voluntarily self-quarantine for two weeks. State leaders also urged college students going home for winter break to limit their activities before leaving campus and to take extra precautions to protect family members once they do return.

1. The incidence of COVID-19 is increasing in many states and countries. Persons arriving in Oregon from other states or Oregonians returning from other states or countries could increase the risk of COVID-19 spread. In addition, travel itself can be a risk for exposure to COVID-19, particularly travel through shared conveyance such as air, bus or rail travel.

Travel Advisory for Non-Essential Travel

1. Persons arriving in Oregon from other states or countries, including returning Oregon residents, should practice self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. These persons should limit their interactions to their immediate household. This recommendation does not apply to individuals who cross state or country borders for essential travel. Non-essential travel includes travel that is considered tourism or recreational in nature. Essential travel includes: work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security.

2. Oregonians are encouraged to stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential travel to other states or countries. Avoiding travel can reduce the risk of virus transmission and bringing the virus back to Oregon.
