EUGENE, Ore. -- The Lane County Board of Commissioners is considering extending their COVID-19 emergency declaration another 60 days.

Currently, it's set to expire on May 16. But during their virtual meeting this Tuesday, commissioners will consider adding on two more months.

If approved, the county administrator will have the power to spend up to $5 million to deal with the emergency. And the way to do that is to extend this emergency declaration, according to the commission's agenda

County officials said they expect most of these emergency expenditures to be reimbursed by FEMA, or other federal or state sources.
