Starting tomorrow (12/03/20) with the end of Oregon’s 2 week freeze – a new categorization for counties will be implemented. At least 21 of Oregon’s 36 counties will be placed in the “extreme risk” category. Jefferson County will be in that category. You can follow this link to see the 4 categories for counties and the restrictions that are listed for each.
Regardless of your location or the level of risk that is assigned to that place, everyone needs to continue to take all the basic recommended precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Wear a face covering in public and at work. Maintain 6 feet of social distance from others especially if someone does not have a mask on. Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer. It’s especially important to clean your hands before going in or coming out of a store or any building or even your home. And disinfect frequently touched hard surfaces like door knobs, faucets, counters, bathrooms and light switches.
