Mindthegap logo v4-01

OregonASK considers the health and wellness of our partners and community to be a number one priority. As new information has developed of the spread of COVID-19 and in light of the Governor’s recent announcement banning group gatherings of over 250, we have been weighing all our options. After conversations with the conference planning team and Linn-Benton Community College we have decided to err on the side of caution, and are therefore cancelling our conference on April 17th and 18thAgain, the health and wellness of our community is of the upmost importance to us, especially as news continues to develop of the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions going forward please reach out to colleen.dorfler@oregonask.org.

    • Working with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to provide up-to-date and accurate information about the virus
    • Providing continuous updates on the status of COVID-19 in Oregon through various media channels
    • Providing resources to continue to inform communities about the virus
