Newport Parks & Recreation is planning to reopen our parks, facilities, and programs in a Three-Phase Plan during the COVID-19 panademic. Using the State of Oregon COVID-19 Reopening Plan as a foundation for decision making, this plan reflects the recommendations of the Lincoln County Health Department, Oregon Health Authority, and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. This plan will be adapted or edited to respond to developing concerns related to the panademic and will be used to guide decision making, planning, and communication.

We thank the community for their patience and understanding we progress through our reopening phases. Please remember our plans are fluid and may change at any time.
