Phase II Reopening Crook County, Oregon (COVID-19)


Crook County was approved today for reopening under Phase II of the Reopening Framework effective Saturday, June 6, 2020. Without the partnership of the Health Department and our community this would not have been possible.

Crook County citizens have done their part to keep the numbers low here. You have stayed home, keeping yourselves and loved ones safe. You’ve washed your hands, worn face coverings and checked on neighbors. And despite the fear and anxiety, this community has stayed united and together.

  • In person indoor gatherings of up to 50 people
  • In person outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people
