COVID-19 Health Update
On June 5, Lane County entered Phase 2 of Oregon's planned phased reopening. This allowed some additional businesses, like movie theaters and bowling alleys, and some recreational centers, like ball courts and swimming pools, to reopen if they meet safety guidelines set by the state.
Face covering requirements
Masks are currently required in all indoor public spaces and in outdoor spaces where maintaining social distance is challenging.
Some state and local parks remain closed. Follow our guide to what's open at local parks and trails and check with the agency managing the outdoor space you'd like to visit for the most up-to-date information:
We urge everyone to take protective measures against COVID-19 by frequently washing your hands, staying home if you feel unwell and covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow when you cough or sneeze.
