GRANTS PASS, Ore -- As of Wednesday night, the state has not released the plans for phase two of reopening. 

"We are trying to have those continued conversations and find out as much as we can to pass onto our citizens as soon as possible." said Lily Morgan. She is one of the Josephine County Commissioners and is making sure to talk to everyone in the county. "Most of our conversations are with local businesses. What they should be trying to do and preparing themselves for the next stages." said Morgan. 

Businesses are also waiting on these details to prepare. "So we are trying to prepare ourselves as best as possible, as we did for phase one." said Dustin Myers. He is the owner of The Vine restaurant. "We are trying to stay on our toes and be as agile as possible. We have a lot of ideas of what most likely will be recommended or mandated in phase two." said Myers. 

Entering phase one has not made owning a business any easier. "Business hasn't been as steady as it was before. It's definitely a little more sporadic and unpredictable." said Myer. The state can announce changes and loosen restrictions, but people need to feel comfortable and safe before starting to resume normal activities. 

"We don't know what anyone else's experience is. Always showing respect and consideration for others is the golden rule." said Morgan. As a county commissioner she says her biggest message to the county is to be kind to one another and respect people's boundaries when it comes to this virus.
