The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has not been suspended.  But in the midst of this public health crisis, the coronavirus and COVID-19 are absolutely changing the way Oregon parks and recreation agencies provide service.  So... how do agencies balance access and inclusion for people with disabilities, and safety?  

This webinar will review the most current Oregon guidance, guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Justice guidance regarding access to recreation programs, and smart practices.



What if the camper cannot wear a mast?  What if the camper grabs employee PPE?  What if a patron spits or licks?  What if a camper runs?

Send us your questions by 2 PM on Monday, July 13 and you will get answers.  Any unanswered questions will be addressed in an FAQ document after the webinar.
