EUGENE, Ore. – The Lane County Board of Commissioners will consider extending its COVID-19 Emergency Declaration at a meeting on Tuesday.

The declaration was first announced back in mid-March and it allows Lane County to use resources for public health needs like contact tracing and disease investigation, as well as other public safety efforts.

The board authorized the county administrator to spend up to $5 million in the response and says it has received $7.5 million in coronavirus relief funds.

The meeting will be held virtually at 9 a.m. and there will be public comment before the vote. If it is extended, the emergency declaration would remain in effect until Jan. 1.
