Face Covering Requirements going into effect

Starting today, Oregon Governor Kate Brown has required all persons entering indoor public places to wear face masks in Hood River, Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Marion, Polk & Lincoln Counties.

In Washington State, the following press release notes it will be a Statewide Order on Face Coverings:

KLICKITAT COUNTY – The Emergency Operations Center in Unified Command with the Klickitat County Public Health Department would like to update our county residents with some important information. Washington Governor, Jay Inslee announced this afternoon that effective Friday June 26, 2020 face coverings will be required to be worn statewide inside public places including stores, offices and restaurants. The order also requires face coverings be worn when outdoors if you can’t stay 6 feet apart from people who are not in your household.

We want to thank our residents who have been practicing these same precautions for a few months now to slow the spread and be a part of the solution.

The latest order includes the following:

  • Anyone age 5 years and older is required to wear a face covering while in public
  • Children between the ages of 3-5 are exempt from this guidance, however it is recommend they wear masks when in public and as tolerated
  • Children age 2 and under are not required or recommended to wear any face covering
  • Exemptions for certain disabilities and medical conditions are included in the order
  • Exemptions for certain activities such as while eating at a restaurant or recreating alone
  • In Yakima County the order will bar any business from operating or allowing any customers from entering without a facial covering, with the same exemptions as above

Businesses, cities, counties and states have been making similar mandates throughout the United States recently. We ask you to continue to do your part in helping slow the spread of this disease until a vaccine can be made available.

  1. This is state-ordered homicide.
    If you wear a mask you’re an evil person.
    If you agree with masks you’re evil.
    If you abide by this illegal edict you’re evil.
    If you enforce this rule you’re inflicting real harm and you’re evil.
    If you put a mask on a child you are vile and evil.
    If you believe what the government says about masks you’re evil.
    The links here provide no scientific data, peer-reviewed studies, or even facts. It’s complete and total propaganda.
    Your mask is evil, your support of masks is evil and you are going to pay for this evil, and soon– when you sicken yourself with masks, inflict brain damage with masks, and openly give up all your rights with masks.
    They are the primary trigger for all conflict today, and so if you want conflict you want mask rules. You are evil.
    Masks are evil.
    Mask supporters are evil.
    Go. To. Hell.
