Per direction from Oregon Governor Kate Brown, all events with more than 250 expected attendees must be postponed – and Mayor Wheeler has asked that events in Portland be limited to no more than 25 people. That guidance affects several events which Portland Parks & Recreation had been planning to host or to present, including the popular Portlanders Stand with Refugees & Immigrants event, which will not take place as planned on March 19. They will be at work to reschedule it, and provide updates as able.
Portland Parks & Recreation has monitored the COVID-19 situation since it began. In a press release today, the department says they continue to be in communication with, and follow the guidance of, the Oregon Health Authority, Multnomah County Health Department, and the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management regarding COVID-19.
They added that they continue increased efforts to clean and sanitize Portland Parks & Recreation facilities.
