VALE – More people can gather indoors and outside of popular venues, and restaurants and taverns can now extend their hours after the county moved into Phase 2 of a COVID-19 virus reopening plan.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown approved the county’s request to move into Phase 2 last week.

In Phase I, gatherings were capped at 25 people but that number is boosted – as long as proper social distancing measures are followed – to up to 50 people indoors and 100 people outside under Phase 2.

Area restaurants and bars are allowed to stay open until midnight . . .
