The Clatsop County Board of Commissioners voted Friday to approve a plan for easing restrictions on hotel, campground and vacation rental operators.

Lodging and camping operators will be able to operate at 60-percent capacity beginning June 5, then expand to 100 percent on June 26 if Gov. Kate Brown’s prerequisite criteria for reopening continue to trend in a positive manner. Smaller short-term rentals will be able to operate at 100 percent beginning June 5.
In March, Clatsop County and the cities of Astoria, Cannon Beach, Seaside and Warrenton each adopted local orders that curtailed lodging businesses. The actions came in the wake of a large influx of visitors to local towns, parks and beaches that sparked concern about the potential spread of COVID-19. Gearhart has followed the county’s lodging order.

The lodging plan comes as the county enters the first phase of Oregon Gov. Kate Brown’s statewide reopening plan, which allowed restaurants, gyms, salons and other businesses in most counties to operate in a limited capacity beginning May 15.

The city councils of Cannon Beach and Seaside each voted to rescind their respective lodging orders effective May 26.
The county and three other cities chose June 5 as a reopening date for lodging because that is the date that the state’s restriction on non-essential travel is anticipated to be eased.

The draft plan originally limited all lodging businesses to 60-percent capacity from June 5 through June 25. The version approved Friday allows short-term vacation rentals, home stays and bed-and-breakfasts with maximum capacity of five or fewer guests to open at 100 percent on June 5; those with capacity of six to eight may allow up to five guests.

The Federal Trade Commission has issued a warning regarding a text messaging scam involving supposed COVID-19 contact tracing, and Clatsop County residents are urged to exercise caution and not to clink any links sent to them in a text message about contact tracing.

Scammers posing as government contact tracers have sent text messages to potential victims asking them to click a link sent in the text. Clicking on the link downloads software onto a victim’s phone that allows scammers access to personal and/or financial information.

Contract tracing – in which people who have been in contact with someone carrying the virus are warned and advised to quarantine – is an import tool in the effort by county and state health departments to assess and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In legitimate circumstances, a person will get a text message from a state or county health department stating that a call will be coming from a specific number. The contact tracer will not ask for money or any personal information such as a Social Security or credit card number.
If you are unsure about a text or call from someone claiming to be a contact tracer, you may call the Clatsop County Public Health Department at (503) 325-8500. You will be connected with a Public Health nurse who can verify if you are being contacted as a part of a local investigation.
