Lane County's Current Health Protocols

Published: October 11, 2021

Just like you, we’re doing our best to stay safe and healthy as we enjoy spring in Oregon. Each day we put into action new and creative ways to keep our parks accessible, our shop doors open and our restaurants dishing up great meals. This includes directional signage, wearing masks, curbside service, delivery options, outdoor venues, physical distancing, drive-in, drive-thru, virtual events and more.

If you’re planning to travel around the region, you’re probably wondering what’s open and what’s safe. Here are some resources to get you started. In addition, keep these tips in mind:

  • Pack your mask; it's still required in all indoor public spaces and in outdoor spaces where maintaining physical distance is challenging (like a narrow hiking trail). This includes children over 5 years old.
  • Think about what you'll need before you leave: pack what you need so you don't need to make unnecessary stops, and call ahead to make sure your destination is open and to make sure you are familiar with its specific requirements.
  • Restaurants and bars are now open for limited indoor and outdoor dining. Call ahead to check reservation requirements.
  • Remember that we're all in this together. Businesses are working hard to adapt and still serve us, and the best thing we can give back is patience, kindness and support. Commit to shopping local, following health guidelines, and providing grace and understanding as businesses adapt to and navigate new guidelines being required by the state. 

So much has changed, but our beautiful region still offers so much that we love. Our same deep green forests, roaring waterfalls, wildflower meadows and sandy beaches are here waiting for us!

If you are visiting from out of state; and for more resources and links to local, state and federal guidelines; please review our Travel Alerts page.

Our hotels and local businesses have reopened and are working hard to serve travelers safely. Many… More Info
