Oregon To Require Masks In Most Outdoor Settings

I have to wonder, is this about the science, or about Progressive (nice Fascism) politicians liking the power over the citizens?

Masks to be required in Oregon’s outdoor public settings

People in Oregon, regardless of vaccination status, will once again be required to wear masks in most public outdoor settings — including large outdoor events where physical distancing is not possible — beginning Friday.

The mandate, announced Tuesday by Gov. Kate Brown, is part of a growing list of statewide requirements implemented in Oregon in an attempt to slow the rapid spread of COVID-19.

Oregon is one of a handful of states with an indoor mask mandate in effect. But it’s the first to reinstitute a statewide mask requirement for outdoor public areas where people are close together, according to the governor’s office. (snip)

The new mandate requires masks in outdoor settings in which people from different households are unable to consistently maintain physical distance. The rule does not apply to “fleeting encounters,” such as two people walking by each other on a trail or in a park.

While the rule does not apply to outdoor gatherings at private residences with individuals from different households, the Oregon Health Authority strongly recommends that people wear a mask during those scenarios.

You know two things: the people in the big, Democrat run cities will be wearing them everywhere outside, and officials will demand that they wear them everywhere outside. Second, the areas outside of the big, Dem run cities will say “to hell with that” and keep living their lives. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a resurgence of the secession movement for parts of Oregon.

(KPTV) The rule does not apply to children under 5; people who are actively eating drinking and sleeping; people experiencing homelessness; people who are playing competitive sports, and people performing outdoors.

Wait, they actually think it’s necessary to say that people do not need to wear them while sleeping? Really? Nice exemption for the sports teams, as football, both college and pro, are getting ready to start. Remember, this is the same governor who signed a law saying students do not have to prove they’re proficient in math, reading, and writing to graduate. Does she go the full Australia route?

COVID and Tyranny in Australia

Australia (along with New Zealand) was touted as the gold standard in terms of their COVID-19 response in the early stages of the pandemic. How did they do it? They locked everything down and paid people (with money printing) to stay at home. Seems simple enough and even understandable given the unknowns at the time and the lack of a vaccine. It never was a viable long term strategy but the country came together to face the pandemic. (snip)

Are the residents of Australia bearing the brunt of the government’s failure? Does the government have more authority over your basic freedoms now than before the pandemic? Have they incited fear in order to grab power? Have they assumed they know what’s good for you better than you do?

Yes, yes, yes and yes. It sure does seem that way.

Read the rest. The only thing standing in the way in Oregon is the federal Bill of Rights and the state Bill of Rights, but, then, Progressives have never cared to follow them when inconvenient.

Have you ever noticed that the people who make the rules and tell people to wear masks rarely do so themselves? Doesn’t matter if she’s inside alone, this is what they require for Citizens in their workplaces

    The anti maskers are just like the same people who were anti mandatory seat belts when Reagan made states enforce that law
    Freedom!!! Lol don’t make those kids wear seat belts

    • gitarcarver says:

      We all know that facts are tough for you, but the fact of the matter is that the first seat belt regulation requiring seat belts was during the Carter administration.

      Secondly, upon taking office, Reagan sought to repeal the NHSTA regulation on seat belts, but insurance companies sued. The Supreme Court ruled for the regulation.

      Under Reagan, Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole proposed a compromise of regulations that would allow non-passive restraints such as air bags, would not be required if 2/3 thirds of the states passed some sort of seat belt regulation.

      Notice that it was not a Federal law that seat belts be worn, but state laws. (We all get that the left hates the Constitution and the delegation of authority to the states, but Hairy keeps trying to lie about what happened.)

      Most states did pass a regulation on seat belt use but initially no state passed any regulation making failure to wear a seat belt a primary cause for a traffic stop. “Failure to wear” was a secondary cause.

      GM has announced that starting 2023, their vehicles will be equipped with interlocks that prevent the vehicle from going into drive unless all passengers are buckled up.

      The year is noteworthy as maybe by then GM will have finished their recall on ALL Bolts due to fire hazards that burn people’s cars and homes down.

      (Hairy hates vehicles that don’t explode and burn.)

      After all, all the left has is hate.

      I’m sure you thought you had a point.

      (A) Do you know what it is?

      (B) Can you explain it to the audience, since it makes no sense to anyone but a lefty idiot (BIRM)?

    • Kye says:

      So Hairy, you equate Freedom with “anti maskers” (whatever they are). So if one chooses not to wear a demonstrably worthless mask he by that fact would be anti seat belt?

      So you believe you have aright to force others to obey your commands …..why?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      According to the CDC:

      All new passenger cars had some form of seat belts beginning in 1964, shoulder belts in 1968, and integrated lap and shoulder belts in 1974 ([Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS)], 2001).

      Automotive fatalities per miles driven have been cut by 75% since the late 60s. Cars are safer now as are roads and highways.

    lol They are not my “commands” But of course “render to Caesar…….”NYC used to have 3000 per day dying now we have less thgan 30 Covid seems to be killing Americans that are not vaccinated I wear a mask to protect others, just as I do when covering my mouth with my hand when coughing. Kye do you also do that ? Did you get vaccinated?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Johnnie, the stoned Buddhist retard: NYC used to have 3000 per day dying

      Might have been a lot less if Cuomo would have used the empty floating Naval hospital supplied by Trump instead of sending them to old folks homes to die.
      But like all dems instead he blamed Trump.

    There’s tons of “credible evidence” if you care to look at it. If you do your usual closed minded stunt of closing your eyes, putting your fingers in your ears and humming Lalalala you will not see it.

    You’re doing the same thing with this you do with the election fraud. Just because you refuse to see and consider it does not mean it does not exist. And I can and have told you MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE showing HCQ works. It’s amazing your ability to just shut off anything you don’t want to hear, see or consider if it falls outside your narrative. I can’t understand how one gets to 70 yo with a mind that closed. Do you bump into walls and stuff?

    Try reading this. You don’t have to agree with it but at least get an idea of what millions of other people are thinking:

    You might not like the source but that does not mean they’re wrong plus you can refer to the links. It’s easy Elwood, it’s called opening your mind.

      The dipshit thinks he knows everything about everything even when he’s wrong, which is all the time.

    Jeff,
    You don’t have a clue as to what is being treated with HCQ. You don’t even have an idea as to the optimum use of the drug. Most of the so called studies that have been reported have used the drug in an inappropriate manner. If I was using the drug for malaria, no problem, or even lupus. But for some reason it is considered dangerous in COVID. In fact, the whole treatment of COVID as recommended by the CDC is guaranteed to produce the maximum of morbidity and mortality. Is liberal politics so important as to cause harm and destruction.

    • Kye says:

      So now we’re supposed to walk around with our personal and medical information hanging out for all to see? How about our dicks, can we keep them private?

      • Dana says:

        Well, under the Democrats, especially once Kamala Emhoff deposes Joe Biden and brings in a feminazi government, you might have to at least certify where your dick has been.
