Reopening for Businesses

This information can change. Please double check resources and continue to monitor them for up to date information.

Governor Kate Brown announced on February 28, 2022, in concert with the governors of California and Washington, that indoor mask requirements would be lifted at 11:59 p.m. on March 11, 2022. In Oregon, this includes lifting mask requirements in schools.

This does not prohibit a business from applying more restrictive requirements, but there should be clear signage indicating extra requirements. Though general outdoor and indoor masking requirements are no longer in effect they are still encouraged. Employers and business owners should also make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities in accordance with ADA guidelines.  Furthermore, OSHA is offering free virtual consultants to address COVID -19 concerns in the workplace, OSHA Consulting Services.

Businesses are encouraged to offer curbside pick-up or work from home options wherever possible.
