A great deal of COVID madness has occurred in Oregon, and it is possible that the situation may deteriorate much worse. In an article published by Genevieve Reaume of KATU News, a local news site, and followed by a tweet, she stated that the state is contemplating making its indoor mask rule permanent.

According to Reaume, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) convened its Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) meeting on Thursday, during which they received input on the indoor mask regulation.

Moreover, she stated that this is the first step in making the mask requirement permanent:

This is the first step in making the rule permanent.

Dr. Paul Cieslak, the medical director for communicable diseases and immunizations with OHA, says making the rule permanent doesn’t mean it’ll be in place forever.

“Permanent means indefinite. It doesn’t necessarily mean permanent,” Dr. Cieslak said. “We can repeal it as well, but we are only allowed to have a temporary rule for 180 days, and anything that goes beyond 180 days, we cannot extend it.”

Making the rule permanent allows the state to keep the mandate in place.

As Reaume also pointed out in her research, Oregon is one of the only states that still has an indoor mask rule, regardless of whether or not a person has received a vaccine.

According to an AARP article written by Andy Markowitz, which was last updated on November 24, additional states include Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Mexico, and Washington state, to name a few examples. A similar injunction has been put in place in Puerto Rico. Until November 22, there was one in Washington, D.C.

For events with 500 or more attendees, the state of Washington even mandates that attendees wear outside masks. From August through November, the state of Oregon was required to be outside.

It’s possible that this tweet from Gov. Kate Brown (D-OR) may come to mind when people think about mask mandates in Oregon. The tweet was first posted on December 10, 2020, but it has since been revived.

Speaking of Gov. Brown, she is currently the least popular governor in the United States, according to Gallup. Her approval rating was barely 43 percent. In reality, Democrats dominated the list of governors with the lowest approval ratings, while Republicans dominated the list of governors with the highest approval ratings.

A total of 79.1% of Oregonians have gotten at least one vaccination, with 73.0% having received the whole series and 21.9 percent having received an additional dose, according to the Oregon Health Authority.
