Welcome to Oregon: a 100% real place. #traveloregon
Not all heroes wear capes. They are out there for you — stay home for them. #StayHomeSaveLives

Today @oregongovbrown tightened social distancing measures to slow the spread of COVID-19. This means every person needs to remain at their place of residence except for essential services. Visit TravelOregon.com/Travel-Alerts for more details. Together we can #FlattenTheCurveOR and keep our communities safe. #StayHomeSaveLives
Now is not the time to travel far from home — especially to the popular North Oregon Coast. Visitors have been flocking to coastal towns like Astoria, Cannon Beach and Pacific City, creating traffic and making social distancing difficult for locals and visitors alike. Do your part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 to keep everyone safe – and show your love for these communities – by staying local. 📷: @dylanvanweelden
Thinking about an outdoors adventure? So is everyone else. Oregon’s trails and parks are getting increased visitation right now – making it difficult to practice social distancing. Instead of venturing outside this weekend, consider staying put and watching some Oregon-made films, singing along to your favorite Oregon musicians or reading a book by an Oregon author. 💚
Happy first day of spring. 🌸 If you can't see the cherry blossoms for yourself, this shot from last year might help you pretend like you're there. And if you do head outside, please remember to practice social distancing. 📷: @tripptidezz
Oregon is a great place for social distancing. However you choose to spend these days apart, we hope you enjoy the time away from your regular routine. Play games. Read a few good books. Spend time in nature to relieve stress. And please take care out there.📷: @itsdavidstone
As Oregon takes action to slow the spread of COVID-19, the state's restaurants and bars are restricted to carry-out and delivery only, with no on-site consumption permitted. Thankfully you can still support these local businesses and their families by ordering meals to go and buying gift cards for future dining. Those incremental efforts can go a long way. Please take protective measures against the virus and make informed travel decisions. We hope you are inspired to explore Oregon when it makes sense for you to do so — and we'll be here when you're ready.

It’s @kayla__lockhart back on the Southern Oregon Coast with @thepeoplescoast — and we’re on the hunt for the elusive steelhead. My favorite rivers to fish for winter steelhead are Oregon’s beautiful coastal rivers. Since I was fishing new waters on the Elk River, we joined local guide @bansemerfishing . Head to the Travel Oregon story to find out if we happened to hook a steelhead or not. #ThePeoplesCoast #TravelOregon — Editor's note: As the state takes actions to halt the spread of COVID-19, we urge all visitors to take protective measures against the virus and make informed travel decisions.

#TBT to Oregon’s popular Multnomah Falls — and how it looks today.
