On March 16, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown prohibited all gatherings larger than 25 people, effective for the next four weeks, due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

For other events, it is recommended that individuals in high risk populations (those over 60 years of age, or those with an underlying health condition) should avoid social and community gatherings of more than 10 people, effective through April 8. Other recommendations include that any venue hosting an event ensures guests have ready access to hand sanitizer, sinks with water, soap, and paper towels.
