WA State has approved Pacific County’s application for early move into Phase 3 of the State Reopening Plan, effective June 16, 2020.
We are so happy to welcome you back and want you to know the business community is dedicated to keeping you safe when you visit. We ask only that you offer us the same consideration. None of us want to see a surge that may close us down again…
The Washington State Department of Health Secretary has issued a mandatory order requiring face masks be worn in public. To view the order, please follow this link.
We understand many of you are looking forward to an escape to the beach and we get it 🙂 the beach is a perfect escape and we look forward to welcoming you. We just all have to remember that we are in this together. As hard as our businesses and residents have worked to comply with all the state and local regulations for reopening, none of it will matter if you don’t also do your part. Wear the mask, wash your hands and please practice physical distancing. If you have a medical issue that prevents the wearing of a mask, our businesses have ways to serve you. Just ask!
The Ocean Park Area Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize and thank each and every one of you for working so hard to stop the spread. We were all asked to flatten the curve and we did it! Now we are being asked to continue that effort just as diligently and we will do that too. Patience and kindness will get us through this.

We are as disappointed as you about the cancellation of so many well loved and eagerly anticipated events in our county. Our goal is to keep this changing information as current as possible on our website and our Facebook page.
4TH OF JULY!
Beach approaches are open and July 4th is approaching fast. If you follow this link to our Facebook page post, you will find information on what is and what is not allowed during firework celebrations.
Our community has been fortunate to have Grass Roots Garbage Gang organize beach clean-ups after the thousands of people celebrate the 4th. We are deeply grateful to them for their years of work. This year, Covid-19 impacts have made a change in their plans.
Now more than ever it is important for people to PACK YOUR TRASH OUT! Please help by cleaning your area, pack your trash, douse fires with water DO NOT BURY THEM WITH SAND and please do not drive into the dunes area or use the dunes as makeshift bathrooms.
SO VERY IMPORTANT – Keep your eyes on the tides…there is a very high tide coming shortly after midnight on July 4-5th!!! Do not get caught on the beach…plan to leave the beach by 11 pm! Tide chart link.
