Playbooks describe the joint collaborative agreement between the Oregon Health Authority, COVID-19 Response and Recovery Unit and other state agencies with the intended goal of stabilizing the spread of a COVID-19 outbreak in a facility or work place. The Playbooks describe the roles and responsibilities of each agency and program as stabilization efforts are coordinated.

Responding to Outbreaks in Agriculture and Farm Operations

The purpose of this plan is to establish the coordination and response efforts of the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Oregon OSHA), Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA), and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when one or more cases of COVID19 are identified at a farming operation.

Responding to Outbreaks in a Child Welfare Setting

The document below establishes the coordination and response efforts of the Department of Human Services (ODHS) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when one or more positive COVID-19 cases is reported in a facility.

Responding to Outbreaks in Developmental Disability Residential Settings

The document below establishes the coordination and response efforts of the Department of Human Services Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODDS) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when three or more cases of COVID-19 are associated with a developmental disability residential setting, otherwise known as a facility.

Responding to Outbreaks in Emergency Child Care Setting

The document below establishes the coordination and response efforts of the Early Learning Division (ELD), Office of Child Care (OCC), Oregon Department of Education (ODE), Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when one or more cases of COVID-19 are identified in an Emergency Child Care Setting.

Responding to Outbreaks in Houseless Services Settings

The document below establishes the coordination and response efforts of the Local Public Health Authority (LPHA), COVID Response and Recovery Unit (CRRU), Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when there is an outbreak in a houseless services setting.

Responding to Outbreaks in Long Term Care Facilities

The document below establishes the coordination and response efforts of the Department of Human Services (DHS), Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when three (3) or more cases of COVID-19 are associated with a long-term care facility. This coordinated response will help to prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 and, when it is possible, ensure that these facilities can continue to operate while protecting the public's health. This coordinated agreement allows for proactive strategies to prevent further spread within in a facility.

Joint Response Protocol for COVID-19 Outbreak in a Minor Youth Shelter Setting

This playbook will help establish best practices for proactive, multi-agency coordination and response efforts for COVID-19 outbreaks.


COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Enrollment

​Providers wanting to administer COVID-19 vaccine must be fully enrolled through the online enrollment system.

  • To be fully enrolled, the online enrollment system will require providers to register for ALERT IIS and to specifically sign up to receive COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Providers experiencing difficulties or who have questions about the enrollment process may email the Oregon Health Authority's provider enrollment team: Vaccine.ProviderEnroll@dhsoha.state.or.us. Please include your provider type in the subject heading of the email to help us triage our responses.

PDF forms will not be accepted at this time to streamline the process as much as possible. We have provided PDF copies of the enrollment information here to help you prepare to use the online enrollment system.


COVID-19 Vaccine Administration Site and Provider Guidance

This guidance applies to any person operating a vaccine administration site or staffing a site, where an FDA authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine is being administered, including pharmacies, health clinics, or other non-health care settings.

COVID-19 Vaccination Site Non-Discrimination, ADA and Language Access Guidance

Compliance with anti-discrimination laws and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the law, and it is particularly critical that operators of vaccination administration sites ensure that there are no barriers to receiving COVID-19 vaccines for communities of color, Deaf people, DeafBlind, people with disabilities, and people who have limited English proficiency (LEP).
