Discover Klamath COVID-19 Travel Updates

During this unparalleled event, it is our goal to keep our residents and visitors informed and focus on the health and safety of all those who live or travel to Klamath County and the Klamath Basin.

In this uncertain time, we know one thing – we appreciate all of you; many of whom are our repeat visitors, family, community members, as well as any potential visitors currently looking to travel to the area.

While we understand that this has an impact on travel and travel plans, we want to keep you updated with the steps our community is taking to keep your health and safety a priority and remind everyone to travel responsibly. For the most up to date COVID-19 information in Klamath, please refer to Klamath County Public Health Department.

As of August 13, 2021, masking is required in all indoor public settings regardless of vaccine status.

As of August 27, 2021, masking is required in most outdoor settings where physical distancing is not possible, including large outdoor events.

Exceptions include and not apply to:

  • Children under 5 years old;
  • Individuals who are actively eating, drinking, or sleeping — as well as individuals living outdoors, such as persons experiencing houselessness;
  • Persons playing or practicing competitive sports, or engaged in an activity in which it is not feasible to wear a mask — such as swimming;
  • Individuals delivering a speech or performing — such as with outdoor music or theater;
  • Mask requirements for day-to-day operations at K-12 schools are not governed by this rule, and will instead continue to fall under the school mask rule. Outside public events, spectator events, and gatherings of the general public on K-12 school grounds will be subject to the rule. Child care and youth programs will continue to follow existing OHA mask guidance; and
  • In addition, entities subject to the ADA must continue to comply with that law

You can find a more information on all guidance here and what this means for Klamath County.

GET OUTSIDE

Our wide-open spaces, spacious trails for hiking and biking, and our great outdoors are always open. Uncrowded and unspoiled, open-air hikes and other outings in nature provide the therapeutic benefits of being outside while practicing social distancing.  Here are a few of our favorite locations: Spence Mountain Trails, Moore Mountain Trails, The Link River Trail, and Geo Trail.  Check out more options below:

STAY SAFE & HEALTHY

To protect yourself and others, please take the following precautions as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

  • Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid sharing food and drinks
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or into your elbow
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

During this time, our hearts and thoughts are with those who have been affected by this. We send our deep appreciation to those in our community, the healthcare industry and first responders who are working on the front lines to alleviate the spread and impact of this virus. Our community and its people are resilient; we will persevere through this and are optimistic about the future.

We thank you for considering Klamath County and the Klamath Basin.  We look forward to welcoming you.
