COVID-19 PLSO RESPONSE
Professional Land Surveyors of Oregon is here for the professional community and the public they serve during this time of crisis. We are working hard to keep our Board of Directors informed, who in turn, will be your source of information for their respective chapters. If you are not aware of who your Chapter Officers are, please be sure to find out here.
On March 24th, the Board of Directors met to discuss recent activities happening in the Governor's office and PLSO's new policy regarding association related activities only. This does not apply to how you choose to run your own company. You may find the policy in the bulleted list below.
Regarding the March 23 Executive Order, our lobbyist Darrell Fuller has let us know that the order specifically only classified non-essential jobs. After Executive Order 20-12 was released, Leah Horner, the Governor’s Policy Advisor on Jobs & the Economy, wrote to Fuller saying, “[t]hank you for contacting our office this week with requests for definition of essential businesses….To clarify, we are NOT establishing an essential services list. The EO identified businesses that are required to close only. Every other business is expected to maintain social distancing through operations or not operate. No additional EO is forthcoming to address essential services.”
