• The Governor announced on May 4, 2021 that she will lift indoor dining restrictions in 15 counties that had faced limits to indoor dining, effective May 7.
  • On March 4, 2021, the state changed the process for counties to transition through the risk levels, allowing a two-week extension before deciding to progress or regress. Now more than a dozen Oregon counties have these updated restrictions in effect. The state mandates each individual counties’ risk level and unique restrictions.
  • Three more Oregon counties moved down from “extreme risk” to “high risk” on February 26, now allowing indoor dining services at 25% capacity or at a maximum of 50 guests, whichever is less.
  • On February 12, twelve Oregon counties have improved COVID-19 risk levels, with 10 improving from “extreme risk”. This stage allows indoor dining at bars and restaurants to increase to 25% indoor capacity or 50 people, whichever is smaller. Outdoor seating increases to 75 people.
  • The current restrictions depend on a county’s risk level. Effective December 18, counties with severe risk of COVID-19 are prohibited to offer indoor dining. Outdoor dining is capped at 50 people and cannot include more than six individuals in a party. The state is working towards allowing restaurants and bars to offer alcohol to-go. A mask mandate remains in effect.
  • As of December 3, restaurants and bars will be allowed to reopen for outdoor dining.
  • As of November 9, the state requires restaurants to maintain a maximum capacity of 100 people indoors and also requires all restaurants to close at 10 pm. Anyone over the age of 5 is required to wear a face mask in public unless eating or drinking.
