Golf Alliance of Oregon Update Regarding State of Oregon's Two-Week Freeze
On Friday, Nov. 13, Governor Kate Brown issued a “Two-Week Freeze” that will take place beginning on Wednesday, Nov. 18 through Wednesday, Dec. 2. This “freeze” modifies the state’s existing COVID-19 protocols for a period of fourteen days and is intended to slow the spread of COVID-19, especially in those counties posting recent, extraordinary spikes in reported cases.
A complete resource for the modified Oregon COVID-19 protocols may be found at the following link:
This Two-Week Freeze, as stated in the list of modifications, “does not apply to or change current health and safety protocols for outdoor recreational activities and sports.” Golf, in its current state, may continue to be played.
As such, the Golf Alliance of Oregon encourages all golf facility operators to be vigilant in reviewing and updating their current Covid-19 best practices to ensure they continue to be in compliance with mandated guidelines in terms of overall sanitization, facial covering requirements and all other safety protocols. When and if further guidance from the Oregon Health Authority becomes available, we will communicate the relevant information to all of our respective constituents.
Led by the Oregon Golf Association, which represents the most avid golf consumers, the Golf Alliance of Oregon is comprised of major industry associations for the region including the Oregon Golf Course Owners Association, Pacific Northwest PGA – Oregon Chapter, Oregon Golf Course Superintendents and the Club Managers of Oregon.
