The official response effort from the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, addressing the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon
Thursday, April 16, 2020
Keeping a distance of 6 feet from others is one of the most effective tools we have to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is your best defense against the virus.
Overstocking means others may have to go without. A good rule of thumb: buy supplies for two weeks. Choose delivery and curbside pickup where available. If you must shop inside, practice physical distancing.
Choose a room in your house where sick household members can recover away from others. If caring for someone, take steps to protect yourself.
Fear and anxiety are normal reactions to a very abnormal situation. Connect with friends and family virtually, and take care of your health. Know that help is available.
When you’re prepared for a crisis, emergency responders can focus limited resources on those with the highest need.
