Tillamook County, the county where Manzanita resides, now has 24 confirmed cases of Covd-19 and no deaths. In the coming week, it is possible that Governor Kate Brown of Oregon will be looking at instituting travel restrictions to Oregon from Covid-19 hot spots. If you are planning a trip to Manzanita please keep an eye on local news reports and be aware that per Gov. Brown’s order, everyone from the age of 5 up is now required to wear a face mask in public, including in stores, bars, restaurants, the beach and hiking trails.
