With the number of confirmed COVID-19 coronavirus cases in Oregon increasing, Governor Kate Brown has directed school districts to proactively suspend events that bring large groups of students, adults, and community members together.

Suspension of non-essential school-based activities for Brookings-Harbor School District begins immediately, effective today, Thursday, March 12, and will remain in effect for 30 days. This includes the suspension of all school-based assemblies and events, off-campus field trips, and professional development meetings and events. We will post a list of canceled events on the district website today, and will update as needed.

There are no reported cases of COVID-19/“Coronavirus” in Curry County as of March 12, 2020. "We remain committed to keeping our schools and programs open and safe at this time," said Chris Eberhardt, Superintendent.

Cities along the coast in Oregon have put bans in place to stop people from coming from other areas and staying in their cities and possibly spreading the coronavirus.
