Two state agencies in Oregon are ramping up their inspections and enforcement of rules that are meant to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The agency that regulates workplace safety in Oregon is still taking in far more complaints than normal, more than two months after the coronavirus started spreading through the state.

A Roseburg family restaurant is facing a roughly $14,000 fine for re-opening its dine-in service, against Governor Kate Brown’s stay-home directive.

A frozen food plant in Albany has been fined $2,000 by the state of Oregon following an outbreak of COVID-19 there affected nearly three dozen people.

The agency that regulates workplace safety in Oregon says it will begin spot checks to ensure employers are following guidelines related to preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
