State Says Multnomah County Must Allow Exemptions From Vaccine Mandate

(Multnomah County, OR) -- The state of Oregon says Multnomah County must allow certain exemptions to its COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Those working for the Sheriff's Department, as parole officers, and as probation officers will not be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury announced the new policy yesterday, saying state law says a local vaccine mandate can't be placed on law enforcement or jail employees unless one is issued by the state. A similar attempt at imposing a vaccine mandate on city police in Portland failed on Wednesday.
