State Offers Free Masks and Gloves

The state of Oregon is offering free masks and gloves to small businesses and child care providers.   

Oregon-based businesses with fewer than 50 employees and child care providers approved by the state’s Early Learning Division can apply with the state to receive these free supplies.  Right now, the state is limiting businesses to one order to ensure sufficient supplies.  Child care providers will need to provide their license/provider number to be eligible and can also access disinfecting wipes and other supplies, in addition to masks and gloves. 

Interested businesses can apply online: https://supplyconnector.org/states/oregon/free-ppe/

Reopening Washington County

Washington County remains in Phase 1 of reopening per the decision of the Governor.  On June 17, the Governor also announced Washington County will move forward in the reopening process as a region with Multnomah and Clackamas counties.  To find out more about the metrics and process, please visit the county’s reopening page.
