Under Phase 1 of Oregon's re-opening plan, many Salem area restaurants have re-opened and are leading the charge to employ the highest health and safety standards in their restaurants and welcome back guests! We chatted with Basil and Board's Brian Kaufman, who shared some of the creative changes they've made to maintain the safety of employees and customers, while continuing to serve up artisan pizzas and other delicious fare.

We are continuously awed and inspired by the resiliency of our community. You accept each new challenge with determination; pivot with grace and respond with fortitude – demonstrating why Salem and the Mid-Willamette Valley a truly special place to live and visit. From the bottom of our hearts, we THANK YOU. As a small token of our appreciation and a tribute to your indomitable spirit and strength, we would like to share this special Salem Anthem video.
