COVID-19 Updates and Travel Alerts

COVID-19 Resources – Oregon Tourism Closures and Updates

This page offers resources on COVID-19 updates, closures, and suggested replies to help travelers and local businesses stay safe during this pandemic.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown has created a task force to collect and inform on economic impact—and craft an economic recovery plan.

The governor has tasked the Regional Solutions Teams to create teams that inform local impact, business best practices, and recovery plans to the state level. WVVA will represent the tourism industry on this team, so reporting impacts to your local DMO or to WVVA allows us to pass information up the chain.

If you are reporting to your local DMO, continue to report to them. WVVA will collect updates from our DMO partners.

Travel Oregon created an online form to capture recent impacts on destinations and businesses. Use the form to share your immediate needs, as well as any special promotions or inspirational stories happening during this challenging time.
