Reopening Oregon – Governor and OHA Criteria and Guidelines as of May 7, 2020

Reopening Oregon

Governor Kate Brown held a media conference this morning at 11 a.m. and in that released what is needed for the reopening of Oregon by phase, by county and by health region.

We have downloaded the resources provided from that briefing directly from the State of Oregon Oregon Health Authority Site.  These downloads include an overall presentation/framework, required health hurdles that we must clear, general guidelines for the public and employees and sector specific guidelines for multiple sectors included in a Phase 1 reopening.

Phase 1 reopening will be controlled at a county level based on specified criteria and in conjunction with the overlapping health region.  Counties may apply for permission to reopen as early as May 15 beginning tomorrow. 

At this time based on information from the Washington County Commissioner Chair, Washington County will most likely not meet the criteria to reopen until late May/early June.

Until the end of September or when a vaccine/treatment becomes available, large scale events are not allowed. This includes sporting events, concerts, fairs etc.

Find PDF links below for the guidance released today .  Is recommended you review them in order presented as they support each other.  There is a Youtube version of the reopening framework PDF which will also be provided below as an option.

Tigard Chamber of Commerce Joins More Than 100 Business Organizations to Launch America’s Recovery Fund Coalition

Americas Recovery Fund Coalition PR

May 5, 2020 – The Tigard Chamber of Commerce today announced it has joined America’s Recovery Fund Coalition, an alliance of more than 100 trade associations and business organizations, including the Save Small Business Coalition (SSBC), advocating for a grant-based federal assistance program to power the resilience of American enterprise. Together, the Coalition’s members span 30 business sectors and employ 45 percent of the nation’s workforce – more than 58 million workers.

“We have joined the America’s Recovery Fund Coalition and support the implementation of the recovery fund as it will be vital for the continued re-opening and recovery of our business and our communities across the nation”, said Megan De Salvo, Board Chair of the Tigard Chamber of Commerce. “Small Businesses and their owners are at the heart of all Communities. They are where people turn to for help with the causes they care about, now they deserve to be the cause we collectively care for.”

In a letter sent to President Trump, congressional leaders, and the Secretary of the Treasury, the Coalition noted:

“Today we are announcing the creation of America’s Recovery Fund Coalition, a group of over 100 organizations advocating for a grant-based federal assistance program to power the resilience of American enterprise. America’s Recovery Fund Coalition includes members representing more than 30 business sectors that together employ 58 million Americans and comprising more than 45 percent of the private workforce.”

The Coalition went on to state:

“Existing programs like the Paycheck Protection Program were a well-intentioned effort to help defray the impact of the COVID-19 economic crisis, but we must build upon the current options and address the overwhelming need for additional capital support to businesses. A broad-based, efficient recovery fund that does not pick winners and losers is the best path forward. Without such a fund, our retailers, theatres, restaurants, and many other industries will be decimated – and our communities will be poorer both economically and culturally as a result.

“America’s Recovery Fund Coalition believes Congress must urgently create a federal direct assistance fund to provide rapid liquidity to businesses impaired by the COVID-19 national emergency. We believe the fund should be designed to help businesses maintain ongoing capital obligations during the prolonged crisis and the next months of economic healing, enabling employees to continue receiving pay, maintain benefits, and helping employers rehire former employees while workplaces get back on their feet and safely reopen to the public.”

A Letter to our Federal Delegation – Support Implementation of America’s Recovery Fund Now!

AFRC

May 5th, 2020

Subj:   Please Support Implementation of America’s Recovery Fund Now!

Dear Congresswoman Bonamici and Senators Merkley and Wyden,

Thank you for the work you are doing in this unprecedented time of a global pandemic. There has never been a more urgent time for your focused leadership, and I can’t imagine the depth and breadth of the requests you are getting from all over. We’ll be brief and get straight to the point. 

In recent weeks, millions of small businesses across the country have been forced to close their doors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The sudden loss in revenue has been devastating – putting paychecks, employees, and hard-working families at risk. Businesses forced to close for the responsible social distancing mandates and to support public health safety as we work together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic will never recover without business continuity funding in their hands ASAP. The long-term impacts to their employees, families, business owners and the trickle effect through our economy will create irreparable harm if we don’t band together as a country and get them the economic help they need rapidly. We believe that there is a potentially viable solution in the wings, and we are asking for unified and expedited support of and need your help now.

That’s why we created America’s Recovery Fund Coalition, comprised of more than 100 organizations representing over 58 million American workers and 45% of the American workforce. We are calling on Congress to create America’s Recovery Fund – a relief fund for businesses to operate during this unprecedented crisis, retain and rehire employees, pay rent, meet debt obligations, and pay taxes. America’s Recovery Fund will be a vital lifeline to business, communities, workers, and state and local governments which rely on our success to fund local economies.

The Tigard Chamber of Commerce signed onto the Save Small Business Coalition, which has now formally joined America’s Recovery Fund Coalition, who is working with members of Congress right now.

Can we count on you to act on America’s Recovery Fund now? We need your help– our businesses’ survival depends on it.  You can learn more here, https://americasrecoveryfund.org/

Stay well,

Debi Mollahan

Tigard Safety Levy Panel

Tigard Safety

Tigard City Council is asking Tigard voters to consider a 5 year operating levy that is $0.29/$1,000 assessed value to fund police services. Passage of this measure would enable the Tigard Police Department to:

– Hire 8 additional patrol officers to respond to increased calls for service, multiple emergencies at the same time, and community patrols.

– Add 1 school resource officer to enhance student safety.

– Train all sworn officers in advanced crisis intervention and de-escalation to address increased mental health crises.

We have pulled together the panel to discuss this levy. Below are the panelists:
Chief Kathy McAlpine – Tigard Police Chief
Maureen Wolf – TTSD Board Chair
John Trinh – CEO, Luke-Dorf, a Tigard based behavioral health agency
Jon Voight – Sherrie’s Jewelry Box
Maria Halstead – Senior Manager, Property Management, Washington Square
Brian Smith – VP of Tualatin Valley Fire Fighters Union IAFF Local 1660
Wajdi Said – Civic Leader with American Muslim and Arab Communities
