OLCC suspends liquor license of Rogue Jet Boat Adventures

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — The Oregon Liquor Control Commission said on Sunday that it is suspending the liquor license for Rogue Jet Boat Adventures, alleging that the company was not enforcing social distancing or face coverings at a large gathering.

On September 10, the OLCC issued an Order of Immediate License Suspension to the licensee of Rogue Jet Boat Adventures in Jackson County for violating public health social distancing and face covering requirements.

OLCC says the business holds liquor sales licenses, yet is "not allowed to sell or serve alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption or sell any alcoholic beverages for off-site consumption."

It says that on September 4, the OLCC responded to and monitored an event in Central Point adjacent to the Rogue River on property controlled by Rogue Jet Boat Adventures; it says the event itself was organized by a third party, Jefferson State Outfitters.

OLCC staff observed more than 200 people in attendance, some not wearing face coverings or social distancing as required by State guidelines. The Commission says alcohol servers under control of Rogue Jet Boat Adventures also were not wearing face coverings or maintaining social distancing requirements.

OLCC says it cited the licensee for not following OHA’s Statewide Mask, Face Shield and Face Covering Guidance. The OLCC is investigating other potential violations at the event.

This immediate license suspension is the third OLCC has issued to alcohol licensees for failures to comply with face covering or social distancing requirements.

In August the OLCC issued immediate suspensions to Jammin’ Salmon in Rogue River and to Coos Bay Speedway. Those suspensions remain in effect.
