Two Week Pause Now in Effect Statewide


A two-week pause has now gone into effect for the entire State of Oregon by Governor Kate Brown following a constant increase in COVID-19 cases. The statewide pause is to help stop the rapid spread across Oregon and to help conserve hospital capacity. Coos County now has 78 active cases and 85 presumptive cases. The county has two currently hospitalized and one death. During the two-week pause get-togethers will be limited to no more than 6 people and no more than two families, restaurants can do take-out and delivery only. Stores will be limited to 75% capacity and encourage curbside pickup. Personal services like barber shops, hair salons and non-medical massage therapy are not included in the current health and safety protocols.
