SALEM, Ore -- The current state of emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic that was set to expire on May 7th, will be in place for an additional 60 days. 

Governor Brown signed executive order No.20-24 on Friday that extends the original declaration made back on March 8th, through July 6th. Brown first issued it at the time Oregon had 14 positive cases of the coronavirus.

"I find that the novel infections coronavirus continues to threaten public health and safety," Governor Brown wrote as part of the order. 

The declaration also allows the Governor to maintain the current "Stay Home, Save Lives", executive order, and the moratorium on residential/commecial evictions.  However, like the order on delaying non-emergency medical procedures, it can be lifted at any time depending on the situation.

"As the Governor made clear [Friday], our efforts to move forward with safely reopening Oregon will be gradual, incremental, and based on science and data, " A spokesperson with the Governor's office said in a statement. "Executive Order 20-24 allows that process of reopening Oregon safely and carefully to continue."
