“Events and promotions that will occur inside businesses, possibly outside as well – all within whatever restrictions are allowed,” said Sandra Slattery, executive director of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber says state discussions about reopening are looking to late May. However, that decision will come with assistance from the Oregon Health Authority. The governor has already listed several conditions before reopening the economy, one of them is the state shows a consistent decline in cases.
