COVID-19 is a highly infectious illness. Local and state health officials continue to urge all Oregonians to take steps to protect those who are most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19. Those considered “high risk” include adults 60 and older, or anyone with a serious health condition, including lung or heart problems, kidney disease, or diabetes, or anyone who has a suppressed immune system.
To help control the spread of the illness the public is urged to follow Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s executive orders pertaining to face coverings and other precautions and to stay home to the maximum extent possible.
Every resident should take these basic steps to protect those most at risk:
• Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
• Follow guidance on face coverings.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay home if you feel ill.
