Client questions on Oregon school closures & parental sick leave – the Oregon Sick Leave Law does apply to public health emergencies!
Gov. Kate Brown has announced that all K-12 public schools in the state of Oregon will be closed Monday, March 16th through Tuesday, March 31st, in an effort to slow the spread of Coronavirus. The school closure announcement comes just after Gov. Brown’s Executive Order #20-25, which prohibits large public gatherings with more than 250 people in attendance. This order will remain in effect until April 8, 2020, unless extended or terminated by the Governor.
