News and Updates on COVID-19 in the Willamette Valley

Nov. 13, 2020: Governor Kate Brown has announced a statewide "freeze" that runs Nov. 18-Dec. 2, 2020. This freeze is designed to limit gatherings and stop the rapid spread of COVID-19; during the freeze, restaurants, pubs, winery tasting rooms, and breweries will only be open for take-out and delivery. Other attractions, such as zoos and gardens, will be closed.

Leisure travel is strongly discouraged at this time, and any visit should be planned with caution and respect for our communities.
