CLACKAMAS COUNTY, Ore. --- Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has given the green light to Clackamas County's phase 1 reopening plan.
It will be the first of the state's three most populous counties in the Portland metro area to start reopening restaurants, gyms, salons and bars with safety measures on Saturday.
Social gathering sizes are limited to 25 people but the governor's guidelines do allow malls, such as the Clackamas Town Center, to reopen if they can follow retail guidelines.
Clackamas County must remain in Phase 1 for at least three weeks before it can become eligible for Phase 2.
Multnomah and Washington counties are the only counties not yet approved to begin reopening in Oregon.
Washington County submitted its application Friday, while Multnomah County has not yet applied.
