Update Regarding City Hall Services (rev. June 29, 2021)

The City has implemented measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our staff and customers, while maintaining our commitment to serve the community. Beginning July 6, 2021, City Hall will be open normal business hours: Monday - Thursday from 7:30am until 5:00pm.

June 12, 2021 - Governor Kate Brown announced that Clackamas County would be moving to lower risk today.

According to state guidelines, lower risk means restaurants, bars, and other food establishments; gyms and fitness facilities; retail stores; and faith institutions and funeral homes can have greater capacity indoors and outdoors and stay open later. For more details, refer to OHA’s Sector Level Guidance Chart

“Achieving 65% vaccination is an excellent accomplishment,” said Clackamas County Public Health Director Philip Mason-Joyner. “COVID-19 still remains a serious health risk for residents who have not yet been vaccinated. Now 98% of the people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 are unvaccinated. We recommend everyone get vaccinated as soon as they can to avoid getting sick.”

Visit clackamas.us/coronavirus/vaccine to find out about when and where vaccine clinics are available.

May 21, 2021 COVID-19 Update from Clackamas County

5/21/2021: 3 things you need to know now

1. Do I still have to wear a mask?

Last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it’s safe for people who are fully vaccinated (2 weeks since second or single-dose vaccine) to no longer wear masks in most places. Governor Brown followed that announcement to say Oregon would follow the CDC guidelines.

On Tuesday the Oregon Heath Authority offered further guidance. People who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear masks indoors in most public settings where vaccination status is checked. In public settings where vaccination status is not checked, masks will still be required. Businesses and venue operators remain free to establish their own, more restrictive, policies regarding usage of masks.

Clackamas County is still in the high-risk level, so we are continuing to require all county employees, visitors and members of the public to continue to wear masks and maintain physical distancing inside county buildings regardless of vaccination status. Each business or organization has the option to require masks or verify vaccination status of everyone inside a building. The Oregon Health Authority has more information.

The Oregon Health Authority tells us that when Oregon reaches 70% vaccination, all mask requirements might be lifted.

2. How close are we to reopening?

Nearby Multnomah and Washington Counties will be moving into lower risk levels soon because they are meeting the governor’s 65 percent target. Clackamas County still has a ways to go, as 58.5 percent of our residents aged 16+ are now vaccinated. As a state, we are at 59.5 percent vaccinated, still quite a long way from the targeted 70 percent to lift most restrictions.

When more of us get fully vaccinated, we can start to resume the activities we did before the pandemic.

3. Local COVID-19 vaccine clinics are plentiful!

We are continuing to host a wide variety of clinics to bring vaccines closer to where you live. Teens aged 12-17 must have the Pfizer vaccine, and kids who are 12-14 must have written parental consent. Details and scheduling links on our website.

What does it mean when the City declares a State of an Emergency?

On Monday, March 23, 2020, the City Council declared a State of Emergency. The declaration allows more flexibility and authorization for the City Manager to take actions to help protect the health and safety of the community. This includes allowing for more flexibility with purchasing, resources, and adjusting City codes if necessary. It may also mean the City can get access to State and Federal assistance if it becomes needed.

It does not mean that the City is literally in a state of emergency, public health or otherwise, due to the Coronavirus. Clackamas County is tracking the number of cases countywide and Public Health Staff are following up with anyone who tests positive for COVID-19.

Where can I learn more about COVID-19 locally?

Where can I turn for help if I know someone who is struggling or experiencing a mental health crisis?

If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, please reach out to the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741 or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.

For emotional support, contact Clackamas County Go Teams at 503-655-8585.
