COVID Restrictions Lifted, Oregon OSHA Issues Temporary Rules
Effective today, June 30, Oregon businesses no longer need to require customers, employees, vendors or others to wear a mask on their premises. Additionally, no physical distancing requirements or capacity limits remain in effect.
Gov. Brown announced last week that she would fully reopen the state by today. She has rescinded her executive orders that placed COVID restrictions on businesses and schools. Read her announcement here.
Healthcare organizations, public transportation and certain other facilities will be required to maintain ongoing restrictions, in line with guidance from the CDC. Other businesses are allowed to continue requiring masks and physical distancing if they so choose.
“We applaud the governor for taking this rational approach to lifting COVID restrictions,” said Sandra McDonough, president and CEO of OBI. “With nearly seven out of 10 adult Oregonians vaccinated, it is time to fully reopen Oregon. Oregon businesses stepped up over the last 15 months, taking extraordinary steps to stop the spread of this disease and help keep their employees, customers, families and neighbors safe. It is time to return to normal. We look forward to continuing to work with the governor and her team as our economy recovers from the impacts of the COVID pandemic.”
