Reopening Washington County

New Framework In Effect, Washington County in "Extreme Risk" Category

Risk Level Activity Guidance Chart
December 3, 2020: The governor's new framework is in effect starting today. The state has developed a website with a menu dropdown feature. Select a county to find out what is allowed in various sectors such as restaurants, gyms, faith gatherings and more. You can also view this activity chart by risk level. Washington County is in the extreme risk category.

Read Washington County Public Health's full response to the new framework in English and Spanish.

Businesses/Employers: You can find additional information on the Workplace Guidance page.

What about schools? 

As of January 1, 2021, the metrics for in-school instruction are no longer mandatory. It is up to the school or district to determine if in-person instruction is safe and the right fit for their students. It is still recommended, however, that transition to in-person instruction does not occur until Washington County meets the metrics set forth by the governor and the Oregon Health Authority (metrics subject to change).
