Governor Kate Brown, joint announcement with Governor Inslee (WA) and Governor Newsom (CA)

Oregon will see a 2-week pause beginning November 18, 2020 and these limits will be re-evaluated on December 2, 2020.

  • Limiting restaurants and bars to take-out service only.
  • Closing gyms and other indoor and outdoor recreational and entertainment facilities. City parks and playgrounds will remain open.
  • Limiting grocery and retail stores to 75% capacity and encouraging curbside pickup service.
  • Prohibiting visits at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
  • Limiting social get togethers, whether indoors or out, to no more than six people from two households.
  • Limiting worship services to 25 people when indoors and 50 people when outdoors.
  • Limiting travel: “If you do not need to travel, you shouldn’t. This will be hard, especially with Thanksgiving around the corner. But the best way to keep your family safe is to stay close to home.”

Although a fever technically is any body temperature above the normal of 98.6 F (37 C), in practice a person is usually not considered to have a significant fever until the      temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C).  Fever may occur with any type of infection or illness.
