The Willamette Valley has always been a place that's approachable, welcoming and genuine. As we look forward to welcoming guests back to the place we all love to call home, it is important to recognize our shared responsibility and respect for the health and safety of our locals, communities and environment.

That's why we launched the Willamette Valley Responsible Reopening commitment. The industry-led effort helps create a safer atmosphere and showcase a true Valley-wide message of unity, care, and excellence.

To date, more than 200 businesses have pledged to make these Willamette Valley Responsible Reopening commitments—like encouraging physical distancing, providing hand sanitizer in public areas, and implementing contactless solutions whenever possible. View the full list of Responsible Reopening commitments here.

Here's a look at what's being done to keep visitors safe, how you can keep yourself and others safe on your next trip, and our partners in the Responsible Reopening commitment.

Since COVID-19 arrived in the Willamette Valley, businesses and public agencies have taken several steps to ensure safety wherever possible. So as you plan your next trip, here's a quick rundown of outdoor dining opportunities, safety tips for public lands, and more.
