The Baker County Commissioners submitted a plan to Governor Brown’s office on April 24 outlining a phased approach to reopening businesses, organizations and events in Baker County that are currently closed by the Governor’s Stay Home, Save Lives Executive Order. The plan was developed through coordination between the Baker County Commissioners, Baker County Health Department, St. Alphonsus Medical Center-Baker City, and the County Public Health Officer. The plan proposes three phases for reopening, and includes measures that can be put in place to reduce the risk of transmitting disease. The next step in the process will be a response from the Governor’s office. If additions or changes to the plan are needed, the County will revise the plan then.
