We Need Your Help... Donate Plasma!
Posted: 7/30/20, 7:01 am

The American Red Cross announced an emergency shortage of Convalescent Plasma (CCP), as well as an urgent need for COVID-19 donors (those who have recovered from COVID-19), as they “have a unique ability to help up to three patients recover from the virus with each donation.”

New Requirements - Effective July 24, 2020

  • Face coverings are required for age 5 and up
  • Restaurants and bars must close at 10 pm statewide, regardless of phase
  • Face coverings are now required when exercising indoors, plus outdoors when you can’t physically distance
  • Capacity limit for restaurants, gyms, venues (e.g. concert halls, movie theaters) is reduced to 100 people indoors, including staff 

Phase 2 |  Current Status: On Hold 
Updated 7/13/20

Face coverings are mandatory statewide.  Mask Up.When will Washington County apply for Phase 2?  We are not ready to apply for Phase 2 at this time. Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties will move together as a region for any further reopening progress.

Oregon reported a new daily record of 375 cases on July 9. The governor recommends limiting indoor gatherings to less than 10 people, limit travel, maintain 6 feet distance and wear a mask.

We are especially concerned about the increase in cases, the percent of our tests that are positive, the number of cases we cannot link to other cases, and a trend in increased hospitalizations. Washington County is watching the data closely
 and talking with Multnomah and Clackamas counties about their data to determine how and when to apply for Phase 2. See Washington County's website.

Just like Phase 1, the County must meet certain requirements set by the governor to apply for and be approved to enter Phase 2.

From Governor Brown's Office
