It started with 15 days to slow the spread.
Now, we are moving towards permanent masking.
The Oregon Health Authority’s Rules Advisory Committee has begun drafting a permanent set of rules for the state’s mask mandate.
75% of Oregon adults have been fully vaccinated.
If you need a reminder that health bureaucrats and Democratic politicians are going to keep COVID-19 restrictions going as long as possible, Oregon is offering the country a glimpse into the future with its permanent mask mandate.
Oregon’s indoor mask mandate was imposed from May 2020 to June 2021, lifted briefly, and then reimposed in August. The state’s current mandate is in place until February, but that apparently isn’t good enough in a state where 75% of adults have been fully vaccinated.
The Oregon Health Authority’s Rules Advisory Committee has begun drafting a permanent set of rules for the state’s mask mandate. The permanent rule can be ended at any time by state health leaders, but given Oregon’s track record, which includes at one point mandating that athletes in outdoor sports wear masks during competition, it’s safe to say such a “permanent” rule would be around for quite a while.
You can see the signs of permanent COVID-19 mandates from politicians and bureaucrats everywhere. Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said last month that you must have a booster shot to be considered fully vaccinated. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has signaled that the definition of “fully vaccinated” could change because of booster shots, while President Joe Biden tries to enforce mandates that would get people fired for not being “fully vaccinated.”
This should not be viewed as just an Oregon thing.
Things like this start in one state and spread all across the country.
