The State's Stay Home Stay Safe Executive Order is still in effect, Clatsop County is in Phase I of the Reopening plan from May 15th through June 4th, essential travel only. Resolution 20-20 For Purpose of Rescinding the City's Protective Measures.

May 14th – Clatsop County reopening approved to enter into Phase I. Beginning Friday, May 15, gyms, retail stores and personal services including barber shops and salons, spas and tattoo parlors may partially re-open, and local restaurants and bars will be able to open for sit-down dining. Gatherings of up to 25 people will also be allowed.

All reopened business will be required to follow detailed state guidelines on numbers of customers, physical distancing, cleaning and other measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Governor’s action does not cover the orders approved by Clatsop County and local cities restricting hotels and vacation rentals. Most local orders maintain these restrictions at least through the end of May.

Visit County website and State website for more details. See state guidelines below.

In Phase I, counties can begin the limited reopening of the following sectors under specific safety guidelines:

  • Restaurants, bars, and other such establishments for dine-in service until 10 pm
  • Personal services businesses
  • All retail businesses, including malls and shopping centers
  • Gyms and other fitness facilities
  • Local social, recreational, cultural, civic and faith gatherings are allowed for up to 25 people with no traveling.

Counties must remain in Phase I for at least 21 days before becoming eligible to advance to Phase II. Counties will continue to shelter in-place for vulnerable population, social distancing, available gatherings no larger than 25, minimize non-essential travel, and continue teleworking.

If counties begin to see significant increases in COVID-19 cases or community spread, the Oregon Health Authority will work with local public health officials to evaluate what actions should be taken. Significant growth in COVID-19 spread could necessitate a county moving back from Phase I to a stay-home status. More details on Phases II and III are forthcoming.

The Governor also announced that large gatherings such as conventions, festivals, and major concerts and live audience sporting events will need to be cancelled at least through September. Restarting events of this size will require a reliable treatment or prevention, like a vaccine, which is many months off. Further guidance on large events will be provided in the coming months.
