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.

Outdoor recreation

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:
