Clackamas Co. Commissioners draft letter to Gov. Brown on COVID-19 restrictions
CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) – Commissioners in Clackamas County spent time at their meeting on Thursday to draft a strongly worded letter to Governor Kate Brown on why they think she’s wrong in moving the county back to tighter restrictions. It was signed by all five commissioners.

The letter says businesses in the county have operated safely in the moderate risk level since February 26 and they believe they can continue to do so. It goes on to say that moving into the “high risk” level with tighter restrictions with such short notice, could seriously harm businesses that have struggled so much already.
