There is statewide two-week ‘freeze’ in place starting today. The effort aims to limit group activities and slow the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon where cases have reached a record high. During the two week span social gatherings of more than six people are banned and museums, pools, sports courts, movie theaters, zoos, gardens, aquariums and venues are be closed. The new rules limit restaurants and bars to take-out service only. Gyms have to close, and stores can’t exceed 75 percent capacity.
