Oregon framework to re-open Counties and the first business sectors
As we notified you Friday – on Thursday Governor Brown announced her Reopening Framework for Oregon. The comprehensive information is linked below. CCET, cities, the county and many other private and public stakeholders – including local businesses — provided a significant amount of feedback on the Reopening Framework and Sector Guidelines. ALTHOUGH COLUMBIA COUNTY HAS NOT YET BEEN APPROVED TO RE-OPEN, THIS GIVES YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS TANGIBLE, ESSENTIAL ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TO PREPARE YOUR BUSINESS TO GET BACK IN BUSINESS!!
There is a significant amount of information, including the Governor’s recorded presentation of the framework for you to watch. WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO SMALL BUSINESSES – PARTICULARLY RETAIL, RESTAURANTS AND BARS, OUTDOOR RECREATION, AND PERSONAL SERVICES IS IN THE Detailed Guidance for specific sectors, and your sector specifically.
Physical Distancing, PPEs, Handwashing/Hygiene and Sanitation/Cleaning are at the core of any and all businesses opening and staying open. The counties must maintain records and meet the criteria for reported cases, testing, and contact tracing. Each county has a responsibility there – the more that businesses can keep good records and assist in reporting and contact tracing, when necessary, the better the system will work to benefit us all. We can each play a vital role in making this work – and you can be proactive in figuring out how to implement essential actions at your own business.
BE CREATIVE, this isn’t about going back to how you did business before, it’s about how you can get back to doing business going forward.
CCET and Keep It Local, plus our many Chamber and local government partners will continue to provide information and updates, and assist however we can. – CCET
