Oregon – Open for Business Update
The Governor issued Executive Order 2115 (EO 2115) on June 25, 2021. Effective June 30, 2021 the COVID-19 risk-level framework has been rescinded. With the exception of licensees in specialized settings like healthcare, public transportation, and airports, risk level restrictions in the following categories have been lifted:
- Hours of operation
- Social distancing/barriers
- Face Coverings
June 30, 2021, the OLCC will evaluate special event applications using the pre-COVID special event license criteria. Special event licensees will not be subject to limitations with respect to the above categories unless the event will occur in a
specialized setting or unless limited by restrictions on the special event license.
Information About Submitting Special Event License Applications
To avoid a delay in processing your special event license application and to increase the likelihood that the OLCC will be able to approve your application in time for your event, please submit your special event license application to the OLCC office serving the county in which your special event will happen. Find the OLCC office here: OLCC offices & the counties they serve
. OLCC offices are open by APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you want to deliver your application in person, you must first email or call the appropriate OLCC office to arrange for submission of your application and payment of the license fee.
Prior to submitting your application to the appropriate OLCC office, ensure the local government where the event will take place signs off on your application (the local government is either the local city if the event address is within the city's limits or the local county if the event address is outside the city's limits). The local government may charge you a fee.
