COVID-19 and the Portland Community

Know Before You Go

While COVID restrictions have been lifted in the state of Oregon, health department officials in Multnomah County (where Portland is located) strongly recommend that all individuals should wear a mask in indoor public spaces, regardless of their vaccination status. This applies to everyone 5 years of age and older.

In addition, masks are required in certain settings including airports, airplanes and public transit, and local businesses can continue to require customers to wear masks. Be prepared and carry a mask with you just in case.

Statewide Guidance

Face Covering Guidance

As of June 30, 2021, masks are not required in the state of Oregon, except while on public transit, on an airplane or in an airport, or in a medical facility.

Businesses may choose to continue to require masks and face coverings, so it is recommended to check with any business on their mask and facial covering policy before entering, and always be prepared and bring a mask just in case.
