This state plans to make their mask mandate permanent despite vaccine success
While more states ease their pandemic restrictions thanks to high rates of vaccination, Oregon officials are arguing for the continuation of their mask rules.
Top Oregon health officials said they want to make the current mask mandate permanent in their state, forcing residents to wear masks inside businesses and offices indefinitely.
According to the officials, they promise to rescind the rule once health experts deem it safe to do so. But as critics pointed out, the government isn’t sharing the metrics or scientific standards that would trigger the need to end the mandate.
“When will masks be unnecessary? What scientific studies do these mandates rely on, particularly now that the vaccine is days away from being available to everyone?” said state Republican Senator Kim Thatcher.
Indeed, this seems to be a classic case of government officials desperately trying to hold on to their newfound power, even as the pandemic seems to be coming to an end in the US.
