Ahead of heatwave, OHA suspends capacity limits at pools, movie theaters


In response to forecasts of dangerous historic temperatures, the Oregon Health Authority has suspended COVID-19 related capacity limits at swimming pools, movie theaters and shopping malls effective immediately, to help Oregonians stay cool this weekend.

The additional venues come after capacity limits were suspended earlier today at cooling centers and on public transit.

Much of Oregon anticipates record-breaking heat over the next few days.
