The COVID-19 pandemic response in Benton County has necessitated a unified response from Benton County, the City of Corvallis, and communities throughout the area. Closures, cancellations, and service adjustments have disrupted everyday life for the entire community.

The Benton County-Corvallis Emergency Operation Center (EOC) is supporting the Health Department’s response efforts, including the needs of vulnerable populations in the community. Partner agencies have stepped up and expanded their services to meet this critical need.
