Gov. launches ‘Stay Home, Save Lives’ ad campaign amid virus

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has launched a statewide public awareness campaign with a Portland-based ad agency, the Oregon Health Authority, and others to inform Oregonians about the importance of staying home to save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. The campaign was created to speak directly to people across the state about the significance of the COVID-19 health crisis in Oregon, and what they can do to help. It also highlights essential workers on the front lines. The campaign will appear on television, radio, social media, and other places online. Additionally, the state fire marshal on Saturday suspended regulations that restrict people in Oregon from pumping their own fuel, effective immediately until April 11.
