Many Oregon employers and employees have been eagerly awaiting the day when we can return to mask-free social interactions and in-person work. On June 25, 2021, Governor Brown issued an Executive Order stating that effective June 30, 2021, Oregon is lifting its mask mandates, capacity limits, and social distancing guidelines. Oregon employers are also bound by the COVID-19-related restrictions imposed by Oregon-OSHA, which include OSHA’s own face covering and social distancing requirements. Oregon-OSHA has signaled that it intends to adopt a temporary rule lifting those restrictions soon, hopefully on June 30. We will provide an update here as soon as Oregon-OSHA releases that temporary rule.
