Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown today announced the addition of four
counties—Baker, Clackamas, Union, and Washington—to the Two-Week Pause
on social activities to help stop rapid spread of COVID-19 where
community transmission is on the rise. These four counties join Jackson,
Malheur, Marion, Multnomah, and Umatilla Counties on the pause,
announced Friday. The pause measures will be in effect for two weeks,
from Nov. 11 through Nov. 25.
“As we continue to see alarmingly high case rates reflective of sporadic community spread, now is the time to implement measures to further reduce gatherings and curb human contact," said Governor Brown. "The Two-Week Pause measures are designed to reduce the amount of people we interact with and the frequency of those encounters. We all must continue to do our part to stop this virus from spreading, particularly limiting our social gatherings and interactions, or we risk further closures and restrictions."
Here at Classes at the Orchard we are following the guidelines to restrict contact - and will be pausing all classes until November 24th.
