Washington County is Preparing to Reopen
We can’t wait to welcome you to Tualatin Valley…when the time is right.
On May 28th, Washington County was approved to enter Phase 1 of Oregon’s reopening plan on June 1. This phase includes the limited reopening of restaurants and bars, wineries and breweries, personal services, gyms and malls throughout Tualatin Valley. Gatherings of up to 25 people will be allowed for recreational, social, cultural, civic or faith events as long as physical distancing requirements are met.
What Phase 1 Means for Visitors
Currently non-essential travel is not allowed and it’s still important to stay local. Continue to avoid overnight and non-essential trips, including recreational day trips to destinations outside your community. Those who reside in a county that has not reopened are asked to be thoughtful and stay home.
Essential travel: Generally, essential travel refers to going distances for work, caring for family or other vulnerable populations, or the need to acquire essential items like food and supplies, medical care and prescriptions, emergency services, shelter and legal or financial necessities.
Non-essential travel: Overall, non-essential travel is not crucial to the functioning of society during a crisis. This includes outdoor recreation activities as well as vacations and other leisure activities. Non-essential travel is not allowed in Phase 1. It is currently unclear when non-essential travel will be allowed again; specifics of Phase 2 are still being determined and will depend on data from Phase 1.
For more information about the phased reopening throughout the state, please read full details on Oregon governor Kate Brown’s website.
