Governor Kate Brown issued Executive Order 21-15 on June 25, 2021. Subject to limited exceptions, effective June 30, 2021, EO 21-15 rescinded the risk-level framework that placed operational restrictions on many different sectors, including liquor licensed businesses.
In response to restrictions placed on licensed businesses during the pandemic, the OLCC created allowances or exceptions to certain requirements to provide flexibility for businesses operating under the restrictions. The OLCC recognizes that there will be a period of transition as licensees rebuild and reconfigure their businesses now that COVID restrictions have been lifted.
The following table identifies changes that occurred during COVID and whether the allowance or exception has a known expiration date.
