Visiting City Buildings
The city will continue providing a combination of remote, virtual and on-site city services to the public. Current operations support efforts to maintain employee health, as well as the safety of visitors. It is also intended to provide ongoing stability as fluctuations in COVID-19 cases and adjustments at the state, county and local levels continue.
At this time Face Coverings are required for visitors to any city facilities.
Effective Sep. 17, 2021, Beaverton public officials and city employees will be required, as part of an enhanced mask policy, to wear one of the following:
- A city-provided KN95 respirator with a filtration efficiency of 90 percent or greater
- Double masks or cloth face coverings
- A mask brace or fitter aimed at improving the fit and filtration efficiency of a mask or cloth face covering
The enhanced policy is not required for employees who provide proof of full vaccination status in recognition that vaccines remain highly effective against COVID-19, including the Delta variant. Fully-vaccinated employees may choose to voluntarily comply with the enhanced policy, and must comply with existing statewide mandates.

Governor's Executive Orders

- No. 20-25: Gov. Kate Brown issued Executive Order 20-25 to maintain essential health directives in response to COVID-19, and implement a phased approach for re-opening Oregon’s economy.
Visitors are required to wear an approved face covering or mask to enter any city facility, except in the following situations:
- A visitor is under the age of 5 years old; or
- Other types of respiratory protection are required (ex. PPE); or
- When eating or drinking and a six-foot distance from others can be maintained; or
- Working inside a private individual workspace with the door closed; or
- It is necessary to briefly remove the mask or face covering because the wearer’s identity needs to be confirmed by visual comparison, such as if interacting with law enforcement.
Please note that city staff will follow city procedures in making accommodations for any visitor who is unable to wear a face covering or mask on account of disability or religious beliefs. Accommodations may include arranging for a simple pick-up or drop-off, providing services by phone, or some other accommodation. Any visitor who is unable to wear a face covering or mask must contact the city staff person, department or tenant whom they plan on visiting in advance so that alternative arrangements can be made. For City services, if the person or department is unknown, they can call the main city line (503-526-2222). Any visitor who enters a city facility without wearing a face covering or mask, and without making alternative accommodations in advance, will be asked to leave and contact the person, department or tenant to arrange such alternative accommodations.
In an effort to increase the response to COVID-19 and support statewide efforts aimed at mitigating surges in the coronavirus, the city adopted an enhanced mask policy that goes into effect Sep. 17. The policy requires all Beaverton public officials and city employees to wear a KN95 respirator (with a filtration efficiency of 90 percent or greater), double masks or cloth face coverings, and/or a mask brace or fitter to improve face covering use. The policy is not required for vaccinated employees.
