COVID-19 public health emergency
In response to guidance from public health officials, the Board is not providing in-person services at this time at its office except by prior appointment. This is in accordance with guidelines for protecting public health and also due to potential workforce limitations tied to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Some Board services can be completed online, and most can be completed via email or phone, thereby eliminating the need for most in-person visits. Please contact Board staff at or 503-566-2837 if you need assistance. 
You can access current information about the COVID-19 emergency and sign up for email updates about COVID-19 at the Oregon Health Authority website.  Information on assistance available for Oregon small businesses impacted by the emergency can be found at the Business Oregon website.
