SALEM, OR (KPTV) – The Oregon Health Authority said it is suspending capacity limits at certain venues due to the hot weather this weekend.

OHA said COVID-19 related capacity limits have been suspended at swimming pools, movie theaters and shopping malls effective immediately.

This comes after capacity limits were suspended at cooling centers and on public transit earlier on Friday.

We contacted Portland Parks and Recreation about pools and capacity limits. They say even with the changes a reservation is still needed to go to the pool this weekend.
