BREAKING! Oregon Indoor Mask Mandate Goes Into Effect Friday, August 13

Oregon will start requiring masks indoors starting on Friday, August 13. The latest order from Oregon Governor Kate Brown will apply to all Oregonians older than five.

"It’s clear the current situation requires immediate action to stop the Delta variant from spreading further. That’s why, moving forward for the immediate future, masks will be required in all indoor, public settings."

"I know Oregonians are tired of wearing masks—I certainly am too. But every time someone wears a mask, that’s one more vaccinated kid we’re protecting. That mask could keep your best friend or loved one out of the hospital," said Brown.

The governor said wearing masks was also our best bet at keeping Oregon's schools and businesses open.
