Mask Mandates

In accordance with the state of Oregon mandate, masks are required in BPRD indoor public spaces for all patrons regardless of vaccination status, except when swimming. This is for all ages 5+. Compliance is required and everyone is asked to wear a mask. Cooperation is greatly appreciated by your park and recreation district employees serving you.

Masks are required outdoors in recreation programs when distancing cannot be consistently maintained except when swimming. Spectators in outdoor areas must either wear a mask or distance from those in other households. Please keep masks handy for moving between indoor and outdoor areas.

Visit BPRD's COVID-19 page to learn more about other changes.
