From OHA (Oregon Health Authority): New statewide rules on get-togethers and face coverings

The governor has announced these two new rules as a result of a frank assessment of COVID-19 in our state:

  • Oregon reported more cases in the past week than we did in the entire month of May.
  • The last time we had fewer than 100 cases in a single day was more than a month ago.

The first rule is a statewide ban on indoor social get-togethers of more than 10 people. This includes gatherings such as dinner parties, birthday parties, potlucks and book clubs taking place indoors. It does not affect restaurants, churches, event venues and other organizations at this time. Businesses and other organizations that have been following the guidance about face coverings, distancing and sanitation have not currently been identified as sources of significant transmission. Effective July 15

The second new rule is that face coverings are mandated in outdoor spaces where distance of 6 feet or more from people outside your household cannot be maintained. This might come up at a crowded trailhead, on sidewalks while awaiting entry to a business or at an outdoor event. Effective July 15

This virus is extremely contagious, and many people don’t show symptoms for days. In that time, you can interact with dozens or, if you’re not careful, hundreds of other people in your social circle and community.
That’s why the three W’s continue to be so important:

  • Wear a face covering.
  • Watch your distance.
  • Wash your hands.

In addition to the new measures announced today, these are other actions we can all take to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • If you can move activities outside, do so. The disease spreads less easily outdoors, and you can enjoy more of the Oregon summer.
  • If you run a business and can serve customers outside – do it.
  • Avoid groups of more than 10. And if you’re unexpectedly in a group of 10 or more, think hard about whether that’s a good choice, stay outside, keep 6 feet apart, and cover your face.
