TASTE NEWBERG INFORMATION

Effective Monday, March 8, 2021, Yamhill County is in the Moderate-Risk category.  County Risk levels are updated every two weeks in response to COVID case counts in the county.  Click here for detailed information and trip planning resources.  Each risk level has health and safety guidance for individuals and businesses, based on activities.

When you visit, we strongly encourage you to follow Oregon’s statewide measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19:

  • Stay six feet from other groups and wear a face covering. It is required to wear face coverings while in public, indoor spaces and outdoors when physical distancing is not possible; exceptions include children under 5 and people with medical conditions or disabilities that prevent them from wearing a face covering.
  • Plan ahead and be patient and flexible. Call businesses before you visit to confirm the hours of operations and if reservations are required. If there’s a crowd at a place you want to visit, you may need to move on to a backup option.  Pre-planning and a little flexibility will make for a fantastic Newberg experience.
  • If you are exploring Oregon’s outdoors, pack out all trash to dispose of at home. Many outdoor recreation sites currently have limited staff and restrooms. Wear your face covering when you can’t keep physical distance from others, such as popular areas like boat ramps, trailheads and parking lots. Find more outdoor recreation tips with Take Care Out There.

We’re proud to join industry partners in committing to a safer Willamette Valley.  The all-new Responsible Reopening program invites businesses to work proactively to improve safety for guests and employees alike.  Learn more about the program and find businesses that are taking part.
