Deschutes and Crook Counties Return to Extreme Risk for Covid

Governor Brown has re-evaluated the Covid risk for counties in the state.  Deschutes County and Crook County will move into the "Extreme Risk" category again from high risk on Friday.  Statewide, fifteen counties in the state will move into the extreme level.  The new classifications come with revised outdoor capacity limits for bars and restaurants in the state, which will be increased in “Extreme Risk” counties from 50 to 100 patrons.  The Governor plans to re-evaluate the classifications on May 6th, and will evaluate the situation weekly - instead of every two weeks - for at least the next three weeks.  Jefferson County remains in the "High Risk" category.  The Governor is partnering with lawmakers to provide a $20 million dollar emergency relief package to provide immediate aid to businesses in “Extreme Risk” counties.
