How to Travel During COVID-19 in Mt. Hood Territory

Mt. Hood Territory's #1 priority for visitors and residents is their wellbeing. 

Our area is rich in history, food straight from the farm, and is home to almost unlimited recreational possibilities. Whether you are planning your trip now or looking for inspiration for a later date, here are some things we'd like you to know to keep your plans as responsible as possible.

Planning ahead of your visit is our number one recommendation for you to enjoy your stay in Mt. Hood Territory. Here are a few things to consider: 

  • Prepare to wear a face covering when in public indoor settings and outside when 6 feet of distance cannot be maintained between you and other people not in your traveling party. 
  • Maintain physical distancing when traveling indoors and outdoors.
  • Call ahead and check to make sure the places you want to visit are open. And ask about their cancellation policies just in case your plans have to change because of health. 
  • Be kind and patient with front line workers in businesses that you visit. They are adapting to the new norm, with limited capacity, and new procedures too. 
  • Things change rapidly, so have a Plan B (and maybe Plan C) for your trip ready to go if needed.

Due a recent significant spike in COVID cases across the state, Oregon's Governor Brown announced a new travel advisory urging visitors entering the state or returning home from travel outside the state to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the virus. The travel advisory urges against non-essential out-of-state travel, asks people to self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving from another state or country, and encourages residents to stay local.

Starting December 3rd, 2020, every two weeks the the state of Oregon will identify each county's local restrictions based on their COVID-19 risk level to help combat the spread of COVID-19. Beginning April 30, 2021 Clackamas County is at the Extreme Risk Level. This includes: 

  • Restaurants and bars must close by 11pm and take out only.
  • Indoor recreational facilities, museums, indoor entertainment activities, and indoor pools and sports courts will be open with limited indoor capacity, along with outdoor recreational facilities, zoos, gardens, aquariums, outdoor entertainment activities, and outdoor pools.
  • Grocery stores and and retail shops will be set to a maximum of 50% capacity.
  • Limit gatherings to no more than six people (indoors or outdoors), and from no more than two households.
