Benton County (and Corvallis) is entering Phase Two.

Benton County is entering Phase 2. We’re happy to be able to continue with the reopening process, following updated health and safety guidance:

- Gathering limits will be raised to 50 people indoors, and 100 people outdoors.

- Indoor and outdoor venues, including theaters and churches, with 6 feet of physical distancing and other measures in place, can reach a COVID-19 occupancy limit of up to 250.

- Offices can begin reopening and employees can return to workplaces with physical distancing and other measures in place, though remote work is still strongly recommended whenever possible.

- Increased travel will be allowed throughout Oregon, though staying local is still recommended to prevent overloading county health systems.

- Restaurants and bars will have curfews extended to midnight.

- Pools and sports courts will be allowed to reopen under new guidance.

- Indoor and outdoor activities such as bowling, batting cages, and mini golf, will be allowed to reopen under new guidance.

- Recreational sports can resume in a limited form, under strict physical distancing guidance.

City Eases Restrictions on Parking Lot Use for Local Businesses

This is pretty cool. Effective today, businesses can start using some parking lot spaces for business operations (outdoor dining, merchandising, queuing, etc.) No permit required...they can just start doing it, with a few guidelines.

Note: This doesn't cover downtown businesses that want to use on-street parking spots; guidance for those businesses is coming next week.

The City of Corvallis is implementing new measures to ease parking restrictions for businesses to help shift some operations outdoors and better accomplish physical distancing requirements.

Thank you to the Willamette Chinese School and their donors for their generous donation of 3,875 KN95 masks to the City of Corvallis Public Works Department. This donation was one of several deliveries to essential industries coordinated by leaders in the local Chinese community in Corvallis. These community members saw a need during the pandemic and stepped up in a big way, and the City of Corvallis is grateful for the support.

Last night's Council meeting included some thoughts from City of Corvallis Police Department Chief Jon Sassaman on the shared heartbreak in the community over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and the events that unfolded over the last week.

CPD is the oldest accredited law enforcement organization in Oregon, having maintained certification under the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since 1995. The designation requires that the department implement and uphold a high standard of training, along with regular outside review of policies and procedures.

“Training is a priority within our organization, and we require annual diversity training with varying topics, to include different cultures, belief systems, building community trust, communication, hate crimes, explicit and implicit bias, white privilege, power structures and more,” Chief Sassaman said at the meeting last night. “In addition, our training highlights de-escalation skills and the health and welfare of any person we have in custody.”

Last night the City Council adopted the budget for next fiscal year, which begins on July 1. The approval included a new item -- $150,000 to fund a bias response initiative for the Corvallis community. The concept was discussed in detail by passionate and dedicated community members, both at the meeting and in written comments, and the Council was supportive of the request. We'll report back about how this new initiative will take shape and how you can get involved -- for now, we're excited to take this next step in partnership with the community.

Thanks to Corvallis Parks and Recreation for reopening these facilities -- now it's up to all of us to keep them open! Guidelines for safe use include: singles only (doubles OK if you're all from the same family), don't share equipment, consider wearing gloves, and maintain physical distancing.

Reminder: Many businesses may ask you to wear a mask when visiting their establishments. This is 1) part of their responsibility through Benton County's reopening plan and 2) a good all-around public health practice. Thanks for being a good citizen and protecting those around you!

Running a few errands today? Many local businesses reopening this week will ask you to wear a mask, so don't forget your mask on the way out the door!

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, and it's a great opportunity to ... enjoy a peaceful weekend at home!

Even though Benton County is in Phase One of the Governor's reopening plan, taking trips and gathering in groups (outside your family) is still discouraged. Yes, the weather is looking nice. Yes, it's totally frustrating. But we're committed to reopening responsibly, and that means maintaining those common-sense public health practices that have gotten us this far. Thank you!!

Thank you for your overwhelming support as our local businesses open up in phase I. Businesses may be overwhelmed as they work to provide face coverings for employees and meet physical distancing requirements. Restaurants may need to move to a reservation system to meet demand.

This is a great way to think about Phase One reopening. Help us stay open by following public health guidelines and taking some precautions. The same practices that got us to this point (physical distancing, avoiding large gatherings, excellent hygiene & handwashing) are essential to moving beyond Phase One.

Help Benton County stay open by continuing to practice:
hand washing, disinfecting surfaces, ensuring physical space between yourself and others, checking your temp and symptoms, training employees in safety requirements, and wearing a face covering. http://ow.ly/X9Um50zHOv4

Welcome to Corvallis

Corvallis is nestled in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley, within 90 minutes of the Portland Metropolitan area, world class skiing, and the spectacular Oregon coast. The Portland metro is accessible to the north for those seeking to add some big-city flair to their Northwest lifestyle.

The City of Corvallis is an employer of choice for the entire mid-valley region. With a strong focus on neighborhood livability and top-notch schools, Corvallis offers quite a bit to families as well. The city is filled with abundant parkland and green spaces. Rural natural areas are popular with hikers, cyclists and runners throughout the year.

The community is home to Oregon State University, and its students comprise about half of the city’s population during the school year. Celebrating its 150th year in Corvallis in 2017, OSU offers a wealth of culture and innovation, and many of its graduates take their knowledge directly into the region’s burgeoning technology sector.

Corvallis consistently ranks among the most livable college towns throughout the nation.

Can someone tell me when playgrounds will open? It’s extremely frustrating to not have a place to take young children to play, especially when so many other things are opening.
We cannot have their voices silenced for their movement that we support. We need to use hashtags that represent what we are going to do now and forever to support them. #hashtagawareness #endwhitesilence #endwhiteviolence #endwhitesupremacy #eliminateracism
A big thank you to all the wonderful people that responded when I called about my elderly neighbor falling. You guys were great!!!!!!!!
#BikeMonth submission
What is the official status of going for a walk, jogging, and or riding your bike for exercise? Is it allowed to do these things without fear of a walking ticket? Can we walk around the High School track. Obviously we would not want to contact others, but this is a great way to get our exercise in and some fresh air.
You need to see what your tax dollars are paying for. They are paying for a racist police force https://www.facebook.com/908009612563863/posts/3400258253338974/
An important question from the Corvallis community to the "City of Corvallis": 𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙣 are you going to open an investigation into 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙛𝙖𝙩𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 at the Third Street crosswalk? 𝙒𝙝𝙮 wasn't this repaired within a matter of days? 𝑾𝒉𝒐 decided it should not be a priority? 𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 are the resignations of the responsible parties?

What is the city going to do with regard to the violent treatment of a student community member?
So, homeless folks are becoming an issue locally that our city officials are ignoring. I, and many others want an immediate answer to when, and what you people are doing while people trash our parks, commit crimes, and generally harass citizens in parks and public areas. I, as a long-time city resident think it's fair that we hear from the people who use our tax dollars to pay their bills.
