SALEM, Ore. — Oregon is set to ban indoor social gatherings of more than 10 people and require people to wear face coverings outside if they cannot socially distance.
Gov. Kate Brown announced the two new statewide COVID-19 safety mandates on Monday.
Brown said that beginning Wednesday, people must wear a face covering while outside if they cannot remain 6 feet (1.8 meters) apart from others or if they are with people that they don’t live with. Brown made clear that the social gathering limit doesn’t apply to churches and businesses.
