Oregon Gov. extends coronavirus emergency proclamation

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has extended the COVID-19 state of emergency for 60 days. Brown said in a news release Tuesday there have been over 8,600 coronavirus cases in the state, with over a quarter of those identified in the past two weeks. Earlier this week she mandated mask wearing for people throughout the state starting Wednesday to slow the spread of the disease. The state of emergency declaration is the legal underpinning for the executive orders Brown has issued throughout the pandemic. Extending the state of emergency declaration allows those orders to stay in effect. The emergency proclamation will now last through Sept. 4.

  1. Gosh, if only there were an emergency, then this wouldn’t sound like the ravings of the crazy lady on the corner.

    More than 14,000 infections of flu before this season, no emergency.

    More than 550 deaths from flu in one season before this. No emergency.

    This is a clear sign of a psychotic break. Been there, I know them. She needs intervention. Help her. Get her out of a position where she can keep hurting us.

    At this point anyone supporting Brown is also unhinged, and really needs to get into a facility.

    One does not call this an emergency unless they think running out of canned tuna is also an emergency. (that’s a crazy cat lady joke)

    A dangerously unhinged lunatic is at the helm. Anybody, somebody, do something, now!
