Masks required indoors & outdoors
Starting August 27, 2021, masks are required in most outdoor public spaces where six feet of distance cannot be maintained. Masks are also required in all indoor public spaces including City Buildings. The mandates apply to everyone in Oregon, five and older. Governor Brown announced the new requirements in response to the increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths due to the very contagious Delta variant.

- CDC Issues Temporary Protection from Eviction Until October 3, 2021: CDC is issuing a new order temporarily halting evictions in counties with heightened levels of community transmission in order to respond to recent developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, including the rise of the Delta variant. It is intended to target specific areas of the country where cases are rapidly increasing and/or would be exacerbated by mass evictions. Washington County qualifies as a high transmission area, but that status could change at any time. We encourage County residents to use this extended opportunity to apply for the Emergency Rental Assistance program.

Who can get a vaccine?
Every Oregonian age 12 and up is eligible for a vaccine. Twelve to 14 year-olds must be accompanied by either a parent, guardian or someone designated by the parent. If someone other than a parent or guardian accompanies the 12 to 14-year-old, they will need to provide proof of parental/guardian consent.
Proof of consent is either:
- A signed consent form (available in English and Spanish on the All4OR.org site)
- A written or typed note that includes the parent/guardians name, relationship to the young adult, their date of birth, a statement saying they consent to young adult being vaccinated and the parent/guardian signature.
Fifteen and older do not need to be accompanied and do not require parental consent in the state of Oregon.
