Following an increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, and in line with recent CDC guidance designed to curb the well-publicized spread of the Delta variant, the Oregon Health Authority (“OHA”) is again recommending that all individuals, including those who are fully vaccinated, wear masks in indoor public settings. The recommendation applies statewide, but it is not a mandate.  It does not change the requirements for businesses and employers, who remain free to dictate their own mask rules. We will continue to monitor the OHA’s guidance, as well as guidance issued by the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and will keep you apprised of any changes in the status quo.
