ENFORCEMENT OF EXECUTIVE ORDER: To report a possible business violation of the governor's executive order:
EMPLOYEES: If you believe your employer is in violation of the governor's rules for safely operating, you can file a complaint on OSHA’s website. This is OSHA's general complaint form. Even though it doesn't say anything about COVID-19, this is the correct place to file your complaint.
CONCERNED COMMUNITY MEMBERS: If you believe a Washington County business is in violation of the governor's rules for when and how to operate, call 503-846-8390 or email email@example.com.
We will first provide education to help a business come into compliance with the order. Citation through law enforcement is an absolute last resort. We must have ALL of the following information in order for our Enforcement Branch to follow up with the business.
- Name of business
- Full address of business, including zip code
- Date(s) violation occurred
- What is the violation? What did you observe? For example: business operating that should be closed; business allowed to be operating but not enforcing physical distancing or face covering requirements; larger than allowed public gatherings
