Gov: Social distancing tips

• In order to protect the health and safety of Oregon families, we must work together and support each other.
• It may seem like we’re in the middle of this, but it’s just the beginning. That’s why the new social distancing measures Governor Brown announced are so important.
• Even if coronavirus is not present in your area right now, social distancing is important for all Oregonians to follow. It will slow the spread.
• We have to slow the transmission of COVID-19 to preserve hospital capacity. That’s why social social distancing is so important.
• Young and healthy people need to practice social distancing — you can be contagious, even if you don’t have any symptoms. Following the guidelines on social distancing is a matter of life and death for others.
• Please do anything you can to assist a friend or neighbor who is a health professional or first responder: bring them a meal, watch their child, walk their dog.
• Isolation from our friends and neighbors is the only way to slow the rate of transmission and get Oregon through to the other side of this.
