Remind Me to Never Go Back to Oregon

As mask mandates end, Oregon bucks trend with permanent rule (apnews.com)

A top health official is considering indefinitely extending rules requiring masks and social distancing in all businesses in the state.

The proposal would keep the rules in place until they are “no longer necessary to address the effects of the pandemic in the workplace.”

Michael Wood, administrator of the state’s department of Occupational Safety and Health, said the move is necessary to address a technicality in state law that requires a “permanent” rule to keep current restrictions from expiring.

Until it’s “no longer necessary”. That sounds like “forever” to me. I will pass. The mandate is over here in Indiana, but I’m still wearing my mask. For the moment.

Not much longer though. Practically counting the days…
