Oregon Government. On Thursday, Kate Brown agreed to gradually reopen Yamhill County in the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic, giving Linfield’s largest campus a seat in Yamhill County in McMinnville.
The first phase of the reconstruction plan begins on Friday, May 15th. Restrictions will be simplified on retail stores, restaurants, barbershops and beauty salons, but they can monitor appropriate social distances and use personal protective equipment to protect against new coronavirus.
Linfield leaders said they are grateful for the governor’s move. Students at Linfield Nursing School, located in Portland City, Multnomah County, receive an application to stay at home.
Davis added that Linfield is satisfied with working with government leaders to ensure that areas around the campus are able to reopen with careful planning in the future.
The Yamhill County Commissioner asked the commissioners to reopen after the governor’s office ensured that the county had sufficient testing and tracking contact and hospital capacity to deal with COVD-19 patients. According to provincial officials, there are currently 52 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection in the province, but there are no hospital admissions.
Patricia Hadland, director of student health, wellness and counseling at Linfield, said: “We appreciate the hard work our local and county officials have been doing in developing guidelines and communication methods to assist in the phased re-opening process.” “The college has always enjoyed a strong relationship with Yamhill County Public Health. We look forward to working together to plan and implement a safe reopening of Linfield. ”
The Oregon State Health Authority is expected to agree on guidelines for a gradual reopening of colleges and universities in the coming weeks.
Lynnfield leaders look forward to the fall semester and explore the different types of situations the university can operate in. The plan includes options for counseling, accommodation, catering services, student activities and much more.
