Worker Relief

Protection from eviction is not automatic! To be protected from eviction for nonpayment after December 31, 2020, renters must fill out and sign a sworn declaration of financial hardship and give it to their landlords in order to be protected from eviction. Under the new moratorium, once a renter gives a signed declaration to their landlord, the landlord is not allowed to move forward with an eviction for nonpayment until after the moratorium ends.

You are required to wear a face covering when riding Yamhill County Transit. “Face covering” means a cloth, a polypropylene, paper or other face covering that covers the nose and the mouth and that rests snugly above the nose, below the mouth, and on the sides of the face. As of 10/19/20 face shields are not recommended as a substitute for face coverings except in very limited situations.


In order to help with social distancing, some bus seats have been blocked off.
These signs are arranged to give riders a safe amount of space from each other and the operator.


Rentals at the Palmer Creek Lodge Community Events Center are temporarily suspended. All events scheduled are cancelled until further notice. 

The Oregon Health Authority is requiring venue operators to:

• Thoroughly clean all areas of gathering space prior to reopening after extended closure.

• Thoroughly clean the gathering space between events according to the cleaning and disinfection requirements.

• Use disinfectants that are included on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved list for the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 virus. No product will be labeled for COVID-19 yet, but many products will have a label or information available on their websites about their effectiveness for human coronavirus.

• Assign a sanitation attendant or attendants to frequently clean and disinfect work areas, high-traffic areas, and commonly touched surfaces in areas accessed by workers and attendees/participants.

• Assign a sanitation attendant or attendants to clean restrooms hourly during the event, and ensure adequate sanitary supplies (e.g., soap, toilet paper, 60-95% alcohol-content hand sanitizer) during all events. 

The City of Dayton is not able to meet all of these requirements at this time, so the Palmer Creek Lodge will remain closed for events until further notice. To read the Phase II Guidelines for Venues and Events, please click here. 

Oregon State Parks has a new tool for Oregonians on how and where to recreate outdoors as some areas reopen. Some state parks are now open for limited day-use, while all overnight camping remains closed. View the status of parks and recreation facilities here.

The playgrounds at Andrew Smith and Courthouse Square Parks and bathrooms at Courthouse Square Park will reopen Tuesday, June 9th. The picnic tables have been moved around the Courthouse Square Park to allow for social distancing - please do not move them. Thank you.
