Brown: Oregon will lift COVID-19 restrictions by June 30
By next Wednesday, you should be able to go most places in Oregon without needing to wear a mask or keep your distance from other people.
The state will lift COVID-19 restrictions Wednesday, June 30 or when 70% of Oregon adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine — whichever comes soonest, Gov. Kate Brown announced Friday.
“That means no more statewide mask mandates in most settings, no required capacity limits and no required physical distancing,” Brown said. “It means, effectively, Oregon is 100% open for business.”
