Oregon health officials announced 230 new cases of coronavirus and seven deaths from COVID-19 on Tuesday, the day before Oregonians no longer have to wear masks in most settings.
Oregon lifts all state emergency pandemic restrictions on Wednesday after Governor Kate Brown’s announcement on Friday it was no longer necessary to wait until at least 70% of adults had received at least one injection of a COVID-19 vaccine. As of Tuesday, about 19,000 Oregonians were expected to try their luck for the state to meet that benchmark.
However, some restrictions will remain in place, in accordance with federal rules and guidelines. Among other restrictions, this means that people will still have to wear masks at the airport and on public transport and in healthcare facilities.
