We need your help
- Please observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from city staff at all times. When our crews are safe, everyone wins!
- Please do not flush anything besides toilet paper. Even if you run low on toilet paper, avoid flushing wipes (even those marketed as "flushable"), paper towels or other products. They can clog pipes and cause a real pain in the drain.
- Your water is safe to drink. The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies. Lake Oswego and Tigard invested in an advanced state-of-the-art water treatment plant that uses chlorination and ozone as a combined disinfectant. Ozone is a strong oxidizer that is highly effective against bacteria and viruses, especially in combination with chlorine. Learn more about drinking water and COVID-19.
- Parks remain open; however, all restroom facilities are locked. Please note that there is no present guidance from CDC on how best to manage parks, including recommended cleaning and disinfection for outdoor equipment to prevent transmission of the coronavirus. Observe CDC’s recommended social distancing of 6’ from other persons at all times. Use of outdoor equipment is at your own risk.
- All Recreation events and public meetings, including Egg Hunt and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, are cancelled until further notice.
