Oregon’s current statewide ban on indoor social get-togethers of more than 10 people includes gatherings such as dinners, birthday parties, potlucks and group events includes any indoor social gathering that includes people who don’t live with you. We know it can be hard not gathering with your friends and family in the ways you’re used to.  But if people don’t take the precaution to not participate in these activities with people outside their household, more people are going to get Covid-19, more people are going to have to isolate, more people are going to get sick, and sadly – more people can die, especially the vulnerable and elders.

  • For celebrations – you can do a drive by event or host an event online
  • For dinners – don’t plan them
  • For hanging out with friends – play an online game together or give them a phone call or video call.
  • Host watch parties with your friendsusing your streaming video app of choice
  • Videoconferencing such as Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts for all types of informal get-togethers, including cooking parties, dinner partiesbook clubsand more.
