Oregon has a new framework for assessing COVID-19 risk in each county. Guidelines and restrictions for preventing COVID-19 will be determined by the county’s risk level for spreading COVID-19. Risk levels will be reassessed weekly and guidelines will change after two weeks if necessary.
Washington County—as well as other counties in the Portland Metro Region—are currently in the “Extreme Risk” category.
Extreme Risk Guidance
After a two-week “freeze” from November 18-December 3 that required restaurants to limit their offerings to takeout and retail to 75 percent capacity, the following new guidelines are taking effect as of December 3:

- Indoor establishments and recreation (including gyms, theaters, museums, entertainment centers, etc.) are prohibited.

Non-essential travel is still discouraged and it’s important to stay local. Continue to avoid overnight and non-essential trips, including recreational day trips to destinations outside your community.

We look forward to welcoming visitors when the time is right.
