Oregon, Washington, and California have travel advisories in effect. All visitors entering their states or returning home from travel outside these states are urged to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The travel advisories encourage a stop to non-essential, out-of-state travel and encourage residents to stay local. The Governor’s press release can be read here.
Deschutes County is in the High-Risk category for the spread of COVID-19, according to the latest metrics from the governor. Restaurants and bars are open for outdoor and limited indoor dining. There is a maximum of six people per party at indoor tables and outdoor tables. Takeout and delivery are highly recommended. See our list of restaurants in Bend that are offering takeout. If you are able, please support our local restaurants during these tough times. For other restrictions, please see our COVID page.
With the coronavirus pandemic still challenging our communities, please note that events, business hours, and local regulations are changing by the day. One thing that’s constant? Our need to protect each other and ourselves from COVID-19.
Right now, everyone in Oregon is required to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces at all times and outdoors when social distancing is not possible. The guidance applies to businesses as well as members of the public visiting indoor public spaces. For your safety and for the safety of our community, you are required to wear a mask or face covering when you are visiting restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions in Bend. Please practice social distancing and wash your hands often. Thanks for doing your part to stop the spread of COVID.
This website is updated regularly with the latest COVID-19 information, which you can view on our COVID-19 page.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Bend when the time is right.
