Statement From the Mayor:
As you are aware, things have moved fast in the last few days. Tillamook County declared a state of emergency on Saturday which has closed the libraries and other offices. On Sunday, North County Recreation District (NCRD) announced they would be closed as of Monday until further notice. Other agencies are making decisions based on their individual assessment.
Governor Kate Brown announced Monday effective today restrictions on restaurants and bars. No gatherings of more than 25 people.
We are working with our merchants as they adapt to these new restrictions and set-up for take out and delivery service. Please continue to support them with your business.
We should be proud of how our community is holding together and adapting. We are maintaining social distancing and helping each other. Continue to reach out daily to your friends and neighbors as we continue to hunker down in our homes and put our lives on hold. The next 15 days seem critical to slowing the spread of the virus. Let’s all do our part.
We are a resilient nation. It’s at times like these that Americans perform at their best. In 1933 FDR, in his first inaugural speech, stated “we have nothing to fear but fear itself”. Don’t let your own fear overcome you. We are in this together and we will come through this.
May the luck of the Irish be with all of us on this St Patrick’s Day!
