Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) is following guidance from public health authorities (Oregon Health Authority, Multnomah County Health Department, and the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management) as we move out of the Stay Home, Stay Safe order.
- Per City policy, face coverings are required at all times for those ages 5 and older when inside City-owned facilities or structures. This includes community centers, programs, events, and all youth camps. For indoor swimming, patrons are required to wear a face covering when not in the pool.
- If you are not fully vaccinated, the CDC recommends you wear a face covering and practice physical distancing when you are in public or when you don’t know if someone you are around is vaccinated.
- Wash your hands before and after you visit a park, trail, or natural area, or any other public space.
- People who are exhibiting symptoms of any illness should stay home and refrain from using any PP&R facility.
