Governor Brown has Reopened Oregon

On June 25, Governor Kate Brown signed Executive Order 21-15 to eliminate Oregon’s County Risk Level framework and most remaining COVID-19 health and safety restrictions starting June 30.

While the new Executive Order cancels most pandemic-related restrictions, it also reminds Oregon residents that masks are still required in health care settings, airports, airplanes and public transportation. The new Executive order also creates terms for ongoing recovery efforts that will be in effect through Dec. 31, 2021.

 Web Portal for Inspection Reports

The Oregon Health Authority has launched a new web portal that will allow people to easily find inspection reports for food, public pool and lodging facilities, such as restaurants, swimming pools and hotels across Oregon.

The portal is provided as part of a software update to the statewide licensing and inspection system. The site will show semi-annual, biennial and annual routine inspections as well as reinspections.  

**Please note that there is a 14-day lag from the date of inspection until it is shown on the website**
