SALEM, Ore. -- As counties enter two weeks of partially reopening under Oregon's Phase I criteria, Governor Kate Brown issued a letter to counties late Thursday night — outlining the process to move into Phase II.

Counties are required to submit a letter of request to move into Phase II. In the letter, Governor Brown says that the request must contain:

  • The date the county is requesting to enter Phase II;
  • A re-attestation that county first responders have sufficient Personal Protective Equipment (PPE);
  • The number of trained contact tracers currently available to the county;
  • Any substantive changes to responses submitted in the Phase I application regarding meeting Phase I prerequisites.

Jackson County Commissioner Rick Dyer sent NewsWatch 12 a copy of the letter below.
