PORTLAND, Ore. — Thursday marks the beginning of a new system of county-by-county coronavirus measures in Oregon based on four "risk levels." At the outset, 25 of Oregon's 26 counties fall under the most restrictive Extreme Risk level.

The vast majority of southern Oregon falls in that category; including Jackson, Josephine, Klamath, Lake, and Douglas counties. Curry and Coos counties currently remain under the High Risk level.

To name a few of the Extreme Risk level measures, indoor dining, gyms and fitness centers, theaters and museums all remain closed. Retail stores, malls, churches, and many outdoor venues remain under capacity restrictions.

Governor Kate Brown issued an executive order codifying the new system, signing it on Wednesday to be effective immediately on Thursday.

Previous statements from state officials gave only the broad strokes of the new system (see OHA's Sector Risk Level Guidance Chart document), but Brown's office notified southern Oregon businesses of sector-specific guidelines on Thursday morning.
