Some hotels in Las Vegas, for example, have been given permission to operate at 100% capacity due to unprecedented demand. The boom in tourism is likely due to pent-up post-COVID-19 demand, but has provided much-needed relief to Oregon vendors.
Not long ago, tourism in Oregon faced gloomy prospects. The tourism and hospitality industry was one of the first and hardest-hit sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
