Oregon Governor Extends Indoor Mask Requirement to Entire State

Kate Brown (D) announced Monday that residents in the state will be required to wear facial coverings in indoor public spaces in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Modeling from the Oregon Health Authority shows that if we don’t take further action to reduce the spread of the disease, our hospitals could be overwhelmed by new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations within weeks,” Brown said.

The governor also insisted that she does not want to have to close Oregon businesses again and said Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) will be tasked will enforcing the new mandate and ensuring that people in public spaces wear facial coverings.

Another spike could put Oregon in a dangerous position of our hospitals being overwhelmed by new cases and hospitalizations within weeks.

According to the Oregon Health Authority, more than 8,500 people in the state have tested positive for the virus with more than 200 deaths.
