Restaurant Dine-In Closure Extended

Published Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Yesterday, April 7, Gov. Brown issued Executive Order 20-14 that extends the prohibition on dine-in food and drink consumption to align with her Stay Home, Save Lives order issued last month. The prohibition will now last until the COVID-19 outbreak is contained. 

“We all want to return to a day where we can frequent the restaurants and businesses that have given Oregon its well-deserved culinary reputation and provided so many jobs for Oregonians,” said Gov. Brown. “I wish I could say there was a date certain when that could happen. But it would be irresponsible to lift these restrictions in the middle of this outbreak.” 

Restaurants, bars and other food and drink establishments can continue to operate take-out and delivery services, provided they adhere to social distancing guidelines for their employees and customers. Continue supporting your local restaurants as often as you can.
