Wearing a face covering shows your support for reopening areas of the economy and public life that have been shut down. CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas with community-based transmission like Malheur County. As we move towards Phase I of the reopening plan, businesses and the public should be prepared with cloth face coverings and other needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
The Malheur County Health Department encourages everyone to wear cloth face coverings whenever you leave home and are around other people, but recognize they can be hard to find if you want to purchase one pre-made. We are supporting local business selling cloth face coverings to businesses and the public and want to share the contact information below for local sellers.
