OFFICIAL GRANT COUNTY OREGON COVID-19 WEBSITE
Business Oregon has a Supply Connector that could come in handy for businesses trying to get supplies and equipment for opening. For Example, clicking on "Yes Help Me Find Supplies" and searching for PPE gets you a list of PPE vendors and a way to contact them.
On Thursday 05/28/2020 the State of Oregon released a two page guidance document on the requirements for reopening counties, Phase II. What was missing was clear delineation and descriptions of exactly what Phase II would look like. The guidance document provided to the State of Oregon simply lays out the requirements (similar to Phase I) that counties my have in order to apply, things like a low number of COVID cases and enough personal protective equipment (PPE). Grant County is waiting for more details from the State on what Phase II would look like and what, if any, lifting of restrictions will be allowed. Stay tuned for more updates when we have them.

The state is updating their Statewide and Phase 1 County guidelines here. These guidelines are still being updated frequently, so check on them often as they remain fluid.
Remember that Phase 2 is NOT A GUARANTEE! We need to stay safe and patient as we move forward with recovery. We need to be responsible and show that we are ready and prepared to move on to Phase 2 when it is time to start submitting plans for Phase 2.
Signage is required for some sectors and recommended for other sectors. We are recommending that all sectors post signage including the actual guidelines for your sector, as directed by the state, so that employees and patrons are all clear on what measures are being enforced and why.
