​Oregon OSHA COVID-19 rule​



State employees are encouraged to keep their eyes open for “phishing” attempts during the coronavirus outbreak. Bad actors take these moments of uncertainty as an opportunity to inundate employees of larger organizations with emails, text messages or even phone calls to gain access to computer networks and files. 

Multiple IT news outlets are projecting that these “phishing” attempts are going to increase and may include false or fear-provoking messages about COVID-19 to get buy-in.  
Enterprise Information Services encourages all employees to take their time on the most recent Information Security iLearn training (DAS – EIS – 2020 Information Security Training: Foundations) to be vigilant against “phishing” attempts and help maintain our cyber hygiene.
Employees should follow their agencies’ reporting process for suspected phishing emails, as well as forward any suspicious emails to  


DAS offers state agencies the following key resource: Work reimagined - physical workspace​​

DAS is taking the following precautions to keep facilities as healthy as possible in light of the COVID 19 virus. DAS asks all employees to help in this effort by following all public health guidelines around prevention and spread of the disease. 

Deep cleaning equipment

DAS has ordered several electrostatic sprayer systems should the need arise for total building deep cleans. Schools and hospitals use these systems and each is capable of cleaning entire buildings in a few hours’ time.  

Building wipe downs

DAS has brought on temporary employees to augment cleaning protocols by assisting custodial staff with systematic wipe downs of all high-contact touch points in the buildings (e.g., doors, hand rails, elevators, etc.). Custodial staff will work during the day and use a cleaner approved to kill the coronavirus. Custodial teams will rotate through all buildings in Portland, Salem, Eugene and Pendleton.

Daily fleet rental vehicles

DAS Fleet wipes down returned daily rental cars with a broad-spectrum solution so any vehicle employees rent comes sanitized as a matter of course. However, employees can help by ensuring their hands are washed before getting in state vehicles. 

​How employees can help

Washing your hands completely and vigilantly is one of the most effective actions you can take to keep yourself and others healthy. Please ref​er to the CDC’s instructions for proper handwashing here​
