On Saturday, February 29, the first reports of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) occurred in Oregon. Since that time, the number of cases has grown significantly with Lincoln County being impacted, as well. The State of Oregon and federal government have declared emergencies to take actions to contain COVID-19. The City of Newport also initiated the Declaration of Emergency on March 13, which was confirmed by the City Council March 16. This enables the City to take timely and appropriate steps to address the local response to COVID-19. The City of Newport has been working closely with Lincoln County and the other government jurisdictions in Lincoln County to coordinate these responses. While we cannot predict how significantly Newport will be impacted by this health threat and the related fiscal impacts, it is important that all of us take precautions to protect ourselves from possible infection and continue to observe social distancing when activities require us to leave our homes. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the services provided by the City. It is our hope that these services can be resumed as quickly as possible once the pandemic allows. We have provided information relating to the City’s response to the emergency. Below is a timetable of actions to date taken by the City for your information.
