Governor Kate Brown announced that updated risk levels will take effect on January 29 with modified rules for indoor activities in Extreme Risk counties, including Jackson County.
The modified rule allows for a maximum of six people indoors in facilities over 500 square feet (excluding indoor dining). For any indoor facility under 500 square feet, one to one experiences, such as personal training, are allowed. Ongoing social distancing, regular cleaning protocols, and wearing face coverings are still required under this modified rule.
Indoor dining is still not allowed because customers cannot wear face coverings at all times inside a restaurant, bar, etc. Outdoor dining with tents with one side and a roof or individual enclosed dining pods are allowed.

As Jackson County will continue to be in the Extreme Risk category, we encourage everyone to continue practicing physical distancing, wearing face coverings, and washing your hands regularly.
