Rescission of all remaining pandemic executive orders –
Operational Cost Assistance Grant Program
The Oregon Legislative Emergency Board on January 8, 2021, allocated $100 million to provide commercial rent relief assistance and operational costs assistance to small businesses and landlords adversely affected by economic conditions as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following two rounds of distribution of Commercial Rent Relief assistance grants, approximately $28 million remains to be distributed through the Operational Cost Assistance Grant.
The Operational Cost Assistance Grant program is designed for businesses with 100 or fewer employees that
- offer the consumption of food and or drink on premise;
- provide specified indoor physical exercise, recreational or family entertainment; OR
- provide specified personal services; and that experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Oregon.
READ DETAILS HERE –
Businesses that received assistance grants through the state of Oregon Commercial Rent Relief Program for the same location are eligible to receive the grant, as long as the award amount through the Commercial Rent Relief Program was less than $100,000.
Applications for the Operational Cost Assistance Grant will be accepted beginning May 26 and awards will be selected after a random lottery process of all complete and eligible applications received. Check this page for details or sign up to be notified for COVID-19 news.Read More
Per Governor’s Office –
As of this Friday, April 30, for SW Oregon counties, risk levels will be:
- Coos (no movement – remain High)
- Curry (no movement – remain Moderate)
- Douglas: High to Moderate
- Jackson: High to Extreme
- Josephine: High to Extreme
While we are very hopeful this is the last surge and that we will see cases decline after this as vaccines increase, given the surge and increased numbers across the board, the Governor has decided to remove the “warning week” for the current and next two weeks (and the use of the “buffer week” will also be on pause). We will release movement week data on the following dates:
Tuesday, April 27th: Movement data released
Friday, April 30th: County Risk Levels change
Tuesday, May 4th: Movement data released
Friday, May 7th: County Risk Levels change
Tuesday, May 11th: Movement data released
Friday, May 14th: County Risk Levels change
Due to the hospital census yesterday of 319 hospitalized cases and the upward trend that has us at a 37.4% increase, the Governor has announced that we are re-instating extreme risk for this week. We will pull data again next week with the potential of moving all counties out of extreme risk every week if/as the hospitalizations go down (or possibly even if they simply level off). The Governor will also be calling on Metro area hospitals to pause elective surgeries until we see hospital rates come down.
There will be 15 counties moving to extreme risk on Friday, April 30th for at least one week.

Go to paintcare.org and enter your zip code to find participating stores in your area. We recommend calling the store to make sure they have room to accept your paint before you visit.
Following COVID-19 safety protocol
All participants will remain in their cars once on site. Trained hazardous waste personnel will come to you and remove the items from your vehicle. Wherever possible, please put your items to be disposed of in your trunk or rear section of your car. Once in the unloading area, please turn off your vehicle and open the trunk or pop the hatch and we’ll take care of the rest.
