On July 13th, we will resume the in-person Bend MLSCO tour meeting at COAR. This will be held in a hybrid format, with the option of attending in person or virtually. 
Precautions
  • Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated. Since we will not be doing vaccine verification or enforcing any sort of mask policy, we will trust our members to make behave in a responsible manner.
  • If you are experiencing cold systems, please do not enter the building.
  • Please use the provided hand sanitizer.
  • Please respect that some members are not yet comfortable removing their mask, shaking hands, etc.

  • Staff are available to accept paperwork and sell lockboxes at our customer service window.
  • Some staff will be working remotely, so if you would like to meet with a specific person or have technical questions, please make an appointment.
  • If you need assistance while at the COAR office, please see the staff person available at the customer service window. Do not enter the main office.

Phones

Staff will still be available by phone by calling 541-382-6027, which is our current phone number. Please note, our office hours will remain the same which is 8:00am-5:00pm.
