In an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus across Oregon, Governor Kate Brown has expanded her Executive Order, requiring additional social distancing. The “Stay Home, Save Lives” campaign directs everyone in Oregon to stay home to maximum extent as possible, which means additional business and government offices that will close.
Starting Wednesday, the Oregon Department of Agriculture will temporarily close all offices to the public. However, services will still be provided by phone, e-mail, or on-line as much as possible. And when public services require in-person interactions, the six feet buffer between people will be strictly enforced.
