Governor Brown Announces Two Week “Freeze” as COVID-19 Cases Escalate

Governor Brown has announced a statewide “freeze” on social and some commercial activities to reduce the spread of COVID-19 which this week reached a daily case count of more than 1,000 for the first time this week.  The freeze is set to begin Wednesday, November 18 and will continue until December 2.  

New regulations include:

  • Limiting restaurants and bars to take-out service only.
  • Closing gyms and other indoor recreational facilities, museums, and indoor entertainment like theaters.
  • Closing outdoor recreational facilities, zoos, gardens, and entertainment venues. City parks and playgrounds will remain open.
  • Requiring all businesses to mandate that employees work from home when possible, and to close offices to the public.
  • 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.

A full list of restrictions and details will be available on Governor Brown’s COVID-19 website

Press release 11.13.20

Friday’s announcement comes after the “pause" the governor placed last week on counties with escalating case rates didn’t sufficiently curb infection growth.  The dramatic increases in daily case counts has largely been attributed to social gatherings occurring on or around Halloween, including one party with 100 attendees. 

Please monitor other media outlets and the Oregon Health Authority for updates as they become available.

Coronavirus Info 2020

OHA has revised its guidance on face coverings include the following new provisions:

The guidance now requires that people wear face coverings in all private and public workplaces including classrooms, offices, meeting rooms, and workspaces unless someone is alone in an office or in a private workspace.

The revised guidance also requires that people wear face coverings in outdoor and indoor markets, street fairs, private career schools, and public and private colleges and universities.

Finally, the revised guidance also recommends wearing a face-covering instead of a face shield, except in limited situations when a face shield is appropriate such as when communicating with someone who is deaf or hearing impaired and needs to read lips.

As of October 28th, 31 people have tested positive forCovid-19 in the 97734 zip code area which covers 153.486 sq mi. For more information, the following link to the OHA website may be helpful: https://govstatus.egov.com/OR-OHA-COVID-19

The CDC’s current guidance is to wear “cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.”  See below for instructions for making and wearing a cloth mask (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html).

We encourage you to wear a cloth face mask whenever you are in close proximity to other people in public (on or off of work). 

Cloth masks are currently being made and donated by community members!

Central Oregon Health Officials urge that there are a number of reasons to wear a cloth mask:

  • Droplets do transmit the disease, but they can be generated from talking as well as coughing. Just standing next to someone talking could spread the disease if neither party is masked.
  • DIY masks can possibly provide protection to the public without impacting the supply of manufactured masks currently prioritized for healthcare workers.
  • There is data that suggests that in countries where masking is encouraged for all citizens, the rate of disease transmission may be reduced by their actions.

CDC ON HOMEMADE MASKS
CDC advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Should cloth face coverings be washed or otherwise cleaned regularly? How regularly?
Yes. They should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use.

How does one safely sterilize/clean a cloth face covering?
A washing machine should suffice in properly washing a face covering. According to the California Department of Public Health, face cloths can be laundered with detergent and hot water and dried on a hot cycle.

How does one safely remove a used cloth face covering?
Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing.
