Great work, Eugene! Data suggests that our community’s continued commitment to stay home to save lives is slowing the spread of COVID-19. With current trends of new cases leveling off, the City is able to maintain its emergency health response while moving into long-term community recovery planning.
This update provides information on the latest City activities and links to more information. For health and safety information about COVID-19 please visit Lane County Public Health’s website.
Stay the Course
We cannot emphasize enough that to successfully transition from emergency response into long-term community recovery we must continue following the latest public health guidelines. Stay home except to meet essential needs. When you must go out, practice good physical distancing. Consider wearing a mask when in public buildings or in shared spaces to reduce the chance of you sharing germs you may be carrying.
COVID-19 Website Updates
Eugene is proud to be a welcoming and diverse city. When it comes to connecting those impacted by COVID-19 with available resources, we know that a one-size fits all approach won’t work. Our whole community will feel the impacts of this pandemic for the foreseeable future, and we continually update our COVID-19 web pages with new resources.
Some of the latest website updates include both new and updated Community Resources pages:
Health and Wellbeing Food Support
Support for the Unhoused
Schools and Children
Support in Spanish
Utilities and Internet
How You Can Help
Our Health and Wellbeing page even includes ideas for physical distancing fun. We will continue to update all of this information as new resources become available.
COVID-19 Resources in Spanish
Data shows that the COVID-19 pandemic is having a disproportionate impact on marginalized communities and communities of color. The City is working with regional partners, non-profits and businesses to share its COVID-19 information and resources with local immigrant communities.The Office of Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement has created several public service announcements to be aired over local Spanish radio broadcasting. Mayor Vinis will be releasing a video directed specifically to Eugene community members who speak Spanish to let them know that the community is aware of their needs.The City has created a Spanish page with coronavirus information and resources specific to the Spanish speaking population. Spanish translations have also been created for the weekly updates from the City Manager, community emails and updates from the library.Resources for More InformationWondering what’s open at the City?
