Governor Brown Issues Vaccine Mandate For Executive Branch Employees, Mask Mandate

(Salem, OR)  --  Governor Kate Brown is issuing a statewide indoor mask mandate and ordering executive branch employees to be fully vaccinated COVID-19.  Brown announced the directives yesterday in response to models that show Oregon hospitals will soon be overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients.  The vaccination requirement will also apply to Oregon Bureau of Labor & Industries and Department of Justice employees.  She's urging leaders of the legislative and judicial branches to make the same requirement.  The vaccination deadline is October 18th, or six weeks after a COVID-19 vaccine receives full approval from the federal government.  Brown plans a news conference today to make the official announcement.
