Lane County Moved Down to Lower Risk Category – Begins Friday, March 26
Oregon’s Risk and Protection Framework uses data to help inform safety measures at the county level. Every two weeks, Governor Kate Brown’s office announces the revised risk status of each county based on current data. Lane County has moved down into the lower risk category for the two-week period beginning March 26.
With the reduced risk level comes new guidance including what is allowed for indoor activities such as dining, gyms, entertainment establishments and faith institutions. See Oregon Health Authority’s guidance for activities at each risk level.

There is a new statewide eviction moratorium (HB 4401) that will last until June 30, 2021. This means that, with limited exceptions, landlords cannot evict renters for nonpayment or without cause until July of 2021. Renters must sign and return a form to their landlord if they can’t afford their rent. This form is available from the Oregon Judicial Branch. Please spread the word! Learn more in this short video about the eviction moratorium.
