Central Oregon Weekend Planner – Mar. 27-29, 2020.
Here is our Central Oregon weekend planner, created each week to showcase events throughout Central Oregon!
The Continued Impact of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be felt throughout central Oregon. As of this week, further restrictions have been enacted to reduce the spread of the virus. Because of this, activities that involve gatherings of 25 or more people have been postponed or canceled and most gathering places have been closed.
Our Portland HQ has created an alternative/additional Weekend Planner with an eye towards activities that can be done at home or online.
