State health officials celebrated falling COVID-19 transmission rates on Friday and also urged Oregonians to avoid social gatherings despite the temptations of the coming Labor Day weekend. “This is tremendous progress, but it will only continue if we keep up the pressure,” state epidemiologist Dr. Dean Side linger said in a statement.

“We cannot ease up and allow Labor Day social gatherings to send our rate back up. “We’ve made great progress through hard work and sacrifice, but those gains are tenuous,” Side linger said.

The Central Oregon city seeks to slow the spread of COVID-19, so that in-person schooling can resume. City leaders issued their initial non-binding administrative order in July, and it was set to expire on Labor Day.

A 53-year-old Marion County man who tested positive Aug. 17 and died Sept. 3 at Salem Hospital. A 70-year-old Clackamas County man who became symptomatic Aug. 4 and died Aug. 15 at Providence Willamette Valley Medical Center.

Officials are still determining if underlying medical conditions were a factor in the fifth COVID-19 death announced Saturday, a 68-year-old Umatilla County man who tested positive June 21 and died at his home July 16. Another 27 people tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Clark County, Washington, the local public health department reported Friday.

Since the start of the pandemic, 76,335 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in Washington, and 1,953 have died, according to the latest counts available from the state. The Department of Parks and Recreation is responsible for 5,500 acres of park land in WashingtonCounty, offering picnic shelters, nature trails, bicycle and bridle trails, hunting and fishing, as well as recreational programs, and special events.

All the county parks are open all year long and house two covered bridges. Due to construction on the Southern Beltway, the Primrose Parking Area for the Panhandle Trail will be closed beginning Tuesday, April 28.

Thank you.NOTICE: DUE TO COVID-19, THE MING CREEK OBSERVATORY IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. MING CREEK COUNTY PARK HOURS ARE FROM DAWN TO DUSK DAILY.

Please call the Parks and Recreation office with any questions. The Oregon Health Authority has implemented guidelines and restrictions for outdoor recreation providers in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

To reduce transmission of the novel coronavirus the public is asked to be aware of and comply with state regulations, so that outdoor spaces can be safely enjoyed. At this time WashingtonCounty Parks remain open for fishing, boating, walking, biking, and running and other activities which do not involve close contact with nonhousehold members and where six feet of physical distancing between people can be achieved.

Bring your own filled water bottles and hygiene supplies (including hand sanitizer), and place trash in an approved receptacle or ‘pack it out’ when you leave. By administrative policy, metal detecting (and related activities) and flying a drone without written permission are not permitted in WashingtonCounty Parks.

Located just 25 miles southwest of Portland, at the base of Oregon's beautiful coastal range, Hang Lake offers visitors the best of outdoor recreational activities. Please continue to practice social distancing and ensure children wash and/or sanitize their hands after touching play structures, as they are not regularly cleaned or sanitized.

To post your recommendation, please sign in or join your neighborhood on Next door. Select a county to find out what is allowed in various sectors such as restaurants, gyms, faith gatherings and more.

It is up to the school or district to determine if in-person instruction is safe and the right fit for their students. All K-12/higher education, health care, and childcare are exempt from the new restrictions and will follow current guidance.

Retail stores, including farmers markets, allowed up to 25% indoor capacity. Table size for outdoor dining is limited to a maximum of six (6) people and two (2) households.

Indoor receptions, wakes or similar gatherings remain prohibited. Indoor recreation and fitness for low-risk sports (dance, no-contact martial arts, gymnastics, climbing) are permitted for practice and training in groups of no more than five (5) athletes.

Appointment-based fitness/training is allowed for 45-minute maximum session with no more than one (1) customer/athlete per room or, for large facilities, per 500 soft. Indoor entertainment establishments such as aquariums, theaters, arenas, concert halls, gardens, museums, bowling alleys, trampoline facilities, wardrooms and event spaces are open for private rentals/tours of individual households up to six (6) people.

Outdoor entertainment establishments such as zoos, gardens, aquariums, theaters, stadiums, event spaces, arenas, concert venues and rodeos can be open for ticketed events with groups of up to ten (10) people from two (2) households. On October 6, Governor Jay Inslee announced a loosening of restrictions on sporting activities.

This includes allowing games and scrimmages for youth and adult sports, as well as runs, rides and races, with some restrictions. This means that King County Parks will NOT be allowing youth and adult sports games at this time due to this classification.

We WILL allow outdoor group athletic activities, such as runs, race, and rides, as of October 15. We will continue to monitor King County’s level of virus activity and adjust our operations accordingly.

We have adapted our operational protocols to adjust to the current circumstances in ways that protect our employees and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Operations and maintenance employees have been issued disposable gloves, face coverings, and hand sanitizer.

Contractors performing work at Parks-owned sites and concessionaires and other vendors are required to update and implement Health and Safety Plans to reflect COVID-19 prevention measures. As of June 19, King County was approved to move into Safe Start Phase 2.

That, coupled with new safety protocols that we are following, is affecting the levels of service that we are able to deliver at this time. You can do your part by recreating responsibly and helping keep our parks, trails, and other facilities tidy.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and subscribe to our e-newsletter to stay up to date about any changes in Parks’ operations. Restrooms are areas where physical distancing can be challenging, and keeping them sanitized to prevent the spread of the virus requires a higher level of service than we are able to provide due to limited protective supplies and limited staffing.

We have increased the number of portable toilets throughout our system, siting additional ones at strategic locations. We encourage visitors to stay local and keep their recreational outings short.

Low risk sports: tennis, swimming, diving, cross-country, disc golf Moderate risk sports: softball, t-ball, soccer, lacrosse, flag football, ultimate Frisbee, cricket, crew, field hockey High risk sports: football, rugby, basketball, water polo, martial arts competitions, roller derby, boxing Effective October 1, state guidelines allow for small weddings and funerals in indoor and outdoor venues.
