Important Information from the City of Hood River during the COVID-19 emergency.
The City of Hood River, along with other local and state governments, encourages all citizens to Stay Home and Save Lives in order to keep frontline essential service workers as safe as possible. Social Distancing of a least six feet is our primary tool to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of Covid-19. All are responsible for limiting contacts and stopping person-to-person transmission of the virus. The sacrifices required of our local businesses have been significant and painful. We will only get through this and get everyone back to work by preventing the spread of this virus.
Notification of the end of the local State of Emergency will be made on the City’s website, its Facebook page, and by email to subscribers.
