PENNSYLVANIA, OREGON SUSPEND IN-PERSON REGISTRATION

From ACSOL:

The States of Pennsylvania and Oregon have temporarily suspended in-person registration for all registrants in those state.  Instead of in-person registration, Pennsylvania is allowing registrants to register by mail, if needed, and Oregon is allowing registrants to register by telephone.

“Pennsylvania and Oregon are protecting the public, including registrants and their families, from further infection of COVID-19 by suspending in-person registration,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “These states are setting an example that should be followed by all 50 states in the nation.”

In Pennsylvania, registrants are required to register by mail only if they need to change or update previously reported information, such as home address, employment or school address.  For those registrants, the state has provided a form which is be mailed to the Pennsylvania State Police, Megan’s Law Section 1800 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110.  A link to that form is immediately below this article.

In Oregon, registrants are expected to call their local law enforcement agency to see if that agency will register them by phone.  If unable to register with local law enforcement, registrants have been provided a list of phone numbers to call based upon their geographic location.  And registrants living in the Portland area have been provided the name and phone number of their registration officer who is available four days a week for eight hours a day.  This compares to San Diego County which has limited registration to four hours each on two days of the week.
