As the developments in Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to unfold, please follow the direction from our public health authorities including the CDC, Oregon Health Authority, and Coos Health & Wellness to protect yourself, our community and our visitors.
This means some restaurants are now open for dine-in with restrictions and retail businesses are now able to re-open with certain protocols. Please be mindful of others when out in public. We encourage you to wear a mask when in public and to keep a 6 foot distance from others whenever possible.
Due to the Governor’s Stay at Home order of March 23, 2020 all non-essential businesses, attractions, state parks, county parks, recreation providers, pools, and shopping malls are closed until further notice. The Governor is strongly discouraging non-essential travel in the state and WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO STAY HOME & STAY HEALTHY. Let’s all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Our tourism industry is feeling the impact of this pandemic with cancellations of events and room nights. We encourage visitors and locals to STAY HOME & STAY HEALTHY. We will be happy to welcome you when all of this is over and we are able to travel again.
In the meantime, here are some suggestions to help you stay healthy.
We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as it relates to our state, our county and our destinations. At this time, we have 28 confirmed cases, and two presumptive cases, in Coos County, all but one associated with Shutter Creek Correctional Institution. County Commissioner Melissa Cribbins updates this data daily on her Facebook page.
This is a rapidly evolving situation that changes by the hour and there is a lot of uncertainty. We strongly encourage residents and travelers to always follow public health authorities’ recommendations above all else.
We look forward to seeing you in the future.
