Masks Required Statewide
Masks, face coverings or face shields are currently required statewide for offices and indoor public spaces (for example, grocery stores, pharmacies, public transit, personal services providers, restaurants, bars, retail stores, and more). Masks, face covering or face shields are required in outdoor public spaces when physical distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible. Children age 5 and up are required to wear a face covering. People with a disability or medical condition may request accommodation from the business if they cannot wear one. Mask Requirements Requisitos de los cubrebocas
Oregon expands COVID-19 testing
Oct. 6, 2020 - Starting this week, Oregon will receive between 60,000 and 80,000 Abbott BinaxNOW rapid point-of-care antigen tests per week through the end of the year. This will nearly double Oregon’s testing capacity, which will help identify more people who have COVID-19. Rapid antigen tests have strengths and weaknesses. They offer quick diagnosis of positive COVID-19 cases. But false negatives are common, especially among people who don't have COVID-19 symptoms. If you test negative using any form of COVID-19 test, please continue to wear a mask, remain physically distant from other people (especially older people), avoid large gatherings and wash hands frequently.
OHA also now recommends testing for anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of severity, and all close contacts of those individuals, even if they have no symptoms.
