According to a recent press release, Oregon Governor Kate Brown has signed an order to lift all Covid-19 restrictions on Oregon that were issued under emergency statutes.  The order states that the restrictions will be lifted when Oregon achieves a 70% first dose adult vaccination rate or on June 30th, whichever comes first.  Some mask requirements may still stay in place in certain settings such as airports, public transit, and medical facilities.

A Transition To Recovery Efforts

The new Covid-19 Recovery Order will transition the state’s focus to recovery efforts over the coming months for Oregonians and communities.

According to Governor Brown, “I’m proud of our collective efforts to vaccinate more than 2.3 million Oregonians. It is because of this success that we can move Oregon forward, and into the next chapter of this pandemic. We are ready.”
