Oregon State Republicans have released the following statement
Oregon Mask Rules Need to Reflect CDC. CDC finally acknowledges what science has known for months: vaccinated people don’t need masks
SALEM, Ore. – Today the CDC issued updated guidelines that permit vaccinated people to take off their masks in almost all settings. For months, science has shown that vaccinated people donot 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 spreadthe 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.
