The Oregon Department of Human Services is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our staff and the people we serve. It’s central to our mission. We’re doing our part to slow the spread of Coronavirus by acting on guidance from our Governor to limit exposure through social distancing measures.
 
Actions we are taking
To support the health of our community, the Oregon Home Care Commission (OHCC) is canceling all scheduled in-person training courses effective Friday, March 13, 2020 until further notice. Over the next two weeks OHCC will begin offering webinar training options for homecare and personal support workers.
