COVID-19 Travel Information
These are extraordinary times and Travel Oregon strives to provide you up-to-date information. Your safety is their highest priority and they want you to have the resources you need to make informed travel decisions when it comes to COVID-19 (or coronavirus).
March 20, 2020: The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak has now spread to at least 150 countries including the United States and has infected more than 167,000 people.
Here in Oregon, the Oregon Health Authority has confirmed 88 positive cases for COVID-19. Oregon Governor Kate Brown has issued moratoriums on restaurants and bars as restricted to carry-out and delivery only, with no on-site consumption permitted, as well as canceling all public gatherings of more than 25 people statewide for at least four weeks — exempting essential locations like grocery stores, pharmacies and retail stores. The federal government also urges Americans to avoid any gatherings of 10 people or more. Public schools are closed until April 28, 2020.
These community mitigation efforts are considered the quickest and most effective means of containing COVID-19 transmissions. Travel Oregon urges all travelers to check in with businesses and event organizers before traveling and take protective measures against COVID-19 while you travel.
