The Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) announced the cancellation of all visitation (visitors and volunteers) to its juvenile detention centers and other facilities, effective March 14 to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus. The ban will be in place for up to 30 days and will be re-evaluated regularly. The OYA considers the measures necessary for everyone’s health and safety.
