Dear Residents,

On November 6, Governor Kate Brown Called for a Two-Week Pause effective November 11, 2020 – November 25, 2020.

This will affect the following counties due to a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases: Jackson, Malheur, Marion, Multnomah, and Umatilla.

Two-Week Pause measures include:

  • Urging all businesses to mandate work from home to the greatest extent possible.
  • Pausing long-term care facility visits that take place indoors to protect staff and residents.
  • Reducing maximum restaurant capacity to 50 people (including customers and staff) for indoor dining, with a maximum party size of six. Continuing to encourage outdoor dining and take out.
  • Reducing the maximum capacity of other indoor activities to 50 people (includes gyms, fitness organizations/studios, bowling alleys, ice rinks, indoor sports, pools, and museums).
  • Limiting social gatherings to your household, or no more than six people if the gathering includes those from outside your household, reducing the frequency of those social gatherings (significantly in a two-week period), and keeping the same six people in your social gathering circle.

As a note, Oregon is still under a temporary moratorium on residential evictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The executive protection protects Oregon renters through December 31, 2020. Additional  information can be found on the State of Oregon website.

Please abide by these increased restrictions as we all work to help reduce the impact and spread of COVID-19.

Thank you,

Kymberly Horner

Executive Director, Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives, Inc. (PCRI)
