Tuesday, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced the loosening of some restrictions for recreational areas in the state, which could provide area residents with more options for outdoor recreating as spring approaches.
“Enjoying Oregon’s beauty and bounty is one of our state’s time-honored traditions,” said Brown. “As we begin to slowly open up recreation sites, state parks and ski areas opportunities, it is critical we ensure the health and safety of staff, volunteers, and the public. And that begins with each of us taking personal responsibility to be good stewards of our parks, and each other.”
Oregon’s outdoor recreation providers and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) have partnered to create recommendations for safely and gradually offering limited outdoor recreation opportunities. This approach means not all day-use and camping areas will open at once.
