So many of us have been affected by the 2020 Coronavirus Corvid-19, especially on the west coast.
Note: As of now many of the Coastal Community have been closed to visitors. Please check if you're wondering about a certain area.
For instance, the Cannon Beach Covid-19 policy can be found here. And the Manzanita Oregon Covid-19 / Coronavirus policy can be found below:
City of Manzanita Press Release, March 22, 2020 Effective at Noon today March 22, 2020 in accordance with Governor Kate Brown's order that all residents stay at Home and under authority of the City of Manzanita's Declaration of Emergency dated March 18, 2020 we are ordering all visitors to vacate Manzanita and return to their homes. On behalf of our citizens, business owners and community that depend on the few resources we have, we request civil cooperation.
With the Coronavirus / accommodations uppermost on everyone's minds, we' had guests asking what steps we've been taking to ensure the safety of our guests. In an effort to address those questions, we've outlined our guidelines, below. They are those recommended on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nty parking lots, county beach access, roadside parking areas, public boat launches except those designated for commercial fishing, and all lodging including local Oregon Coast hotels, motels, vacation rentals, Bed and Breakfast accommodations, RV parks and campgrounds with the exception of guests registered longer than 30 days, essential personnel and emergency responders.
Before the Oregon Coast coronavirus closure, the coronavirus cleaning in accommodations was uppermost on everyone's minds. We had guests asking what steps we've been taking to ensure the safety of our guests. In an effort to address those questions, we outlined our guidelines, below. They are those recommended on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Not only would these guidelines address our own oceanfront vacation rentals on Manzanita Beach, they are things to look for in whatever travel destination you've visiting on the Oregon Coast.
General Recommendations for Cleaning and Disinfection of Households
Household members should educate themselves about COVID-19 symptoms and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in homes. Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces daily in household common areas (e.g. tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks).
How to Clean and DisinfectSurfaces
Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. If reusable gloves are used, those gloves should be dedicated for cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for COVID-19 and should not be used for other purposes. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and disinfection products used. Clean hands immediately after gloves are removed.If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using a detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.For disinfection, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol, and most common EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective.
Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
Launder items as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely, or Use products with the EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims that are suitable for porous surfaces.
Wear disposable gloves when handling dirty laundry from an ill person and then discard after each use.

This will minimize the possibility of dispersing virus through the air.Launder items as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
