Enforcement of Executive Orders
We expect that we will achieve voluntary compliance with the Executive Orders, but the rules are in place in unlikely event that enforcement is necessary. The implementation protocols describe how to use the warning letters for facilities that refuse to comply with executive orders around COVID-19. These letters are also available in English and Spanish in HealthSpace with the ability to create and attach them directly to the facility record.

New Rules - Enforcement of Executive Orders
The Oregon Health Authority (Authority), Public Health Division, has adopted OAR 333-003-1001 thru 333-003-3040 (modifications made on December 18th and December 24th) to implement the Governor's Executive Orders issued as a result of a declaration of an emergency due to the public health threat posed by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). On December 2, 2020, the Governor issued Executive Order 20-66, which adjusted the framework for the community mitigation strategies from a phased approach to a county-by-county metrics approach. These temporary rules amend existing rules to adjust the requirements and provisions to the new metrics approach. The revisions allow the Authority or a local public health authority to issue civil penalties and enforce the provisions of the Executive Orders, but only as long as the underlying Executive Orders are in effect. The rules also clarify the Authority or local public health authority authorization to act under their licensing authorities for food establishments and tourist facilities to enforce applicable Executive Order and Authority guidance requirements, including through closures, suspension, revocation, and civil penalty. Please note that the requirements of these rules will expire when the Governor has terminated the Executive Order underlying the prohibition or requirement.
