Oregon Mask Rules Need to Reflect CDC
CDC finally acknowledges what science has known for months

The federal Centers for Disease Control has issued updated guidelines that permit vaccinated people to take off their masks in almost all settings. For months, science has shown that vaccinated people do not pose a threat to others by spreading the virus.

Yet, Oregon OSHA still requires masks in places of business for those who have been vaccinated.

“At nearly every turn, Oregon has moved the slowest to follow the science. On reopening our schools, our economy, and now masks. The science is clear that vaccinated people do not spread the virus and do not need masks. The Governor should immediately direct OSHA to update their permanent mask mandate to come in line with this guidance,” Senate Republican Leader Fred Girod (R-Lyons) said.

Neither the Oregon Health Authority nor Oregon OSHA have any response to the CDC announcement at the time this went to press.
