Washington County will move from the “High Risk” to the “Lower Risk” status on Friday, May 21 after meeting a 65% first-dose vaccination rate for those ages 16 and up, Governor Kate Brown announced after 4 p.m. on Tuesday. 

Washington County is among five counties that applied to move to the Lower Risk tier in the framework, a move that will significantly lessen restrictions on the number of people allowed in stores, restaurants, gyms, entertainment facilities, allow indoor contact sports to resume, allow churches and other religious activities to permit larger groups of people, and more.
