In Oregon, the growing COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in a stay-at-home order from Governor Kate Brown — banning public gatherings of any size, and forcing many businesses to either shut down or adjust their services to accommodate social distancing.

K-12 schools in Oregon have been ordered to close down through April 28. Most colleges have also opted to extend Spring Break and temporarily transition to online courses.

Stay with NewsWatch 12 for updates as we track new developments in Oregon, California, and beyond.
