Staying safe during COVID-19: New COVID-19 guidelines by the Oregon Health Authority make shopping in person safe, giving you peace of mind. During the next two weeks running to December 17, 2020 retail stores are limited to a maximum of 50% capacity. If you’d rather not shop in person, many stores offer online shopping and curbside pickup.
