The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, first identified in Wuhan, China in late 2019 has now spread to at least 76 countries including the United States and has infected more than 100,000 people.
Here in Oregon, the Oregon Health Authority has confirmed 21 positive cases for COVID-19. Oregon Governor Kate Brown has also issued a moratorium on all public gatherings of more than 250 people statewide for four weeks, effective immediately. This community mitigation effort is considered the quickest and most effective means of containing COVID-19 transmissions. We urge all travelers to check in with event organizers before traveling and take protective measures against COVID-19 while you travel:
- Wash hands frequently with soap and water
- Do not touch your mouth, nose, and eyes with unwashed hands
- Avoid close contact with those who are sick, and avoid public places if you develop respiratory illness symptoms like fever and cough
- Finally, remember that viruses don’t discriminate. The coronavirus does not target people from specific populations, ethnicities or racial backgrounds.
