Masks will be required at most outdoor gatherings starting this Friday, regardless of vaccination status, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced Tuesday.

According to the governor’s office, the outdoor mask mandate applies to large outdoor events where physical distancing is not possible.
The new requirements don’t extend to outdoor gathering at private residences, but state health officials “strongly recommend” masking at gatherings when people from different households can’t distance. The rules also don’t apply to “fleeting encounters,” like two people walking by each other on a trail or in a park.
The rule does not apply to children under 5; people who are actively eating drinking and sleeping; people experiencing homelessness; people who are playing competitive sports, and people performing outdoors.
At least kids under 5 are exempt, and it doesn’t sound like they’ll be sending the police to private residences. Here’s the governor:

She would like to be prime minister of Australia but is attempting the same repression as state governor instead.

Mask required. Math, reading and writing optional.

Brilliant! How about four masks for each person? Hazmat suits? Definitely a great idea to isolate yourself from any of that nasty fresh air. Better avoid sunshine as well. Stay inside. And wait for the world to be perfect without any viruses or diseases. #leaveoregonwhileyoucan

Remember folks when masks don’t stop the spread, just mask harder. It’s that simple

You have to appreciate the comedy in all of this. Despite them being wrong about everything the whole time, their followers continue to follow. The greatest lesson of history is that for some there is no lesson from history. https://t.co/0nneE2Pcvo

And this is why no one is listening anymore. So much of the "mitigation" guidance is nothing more than theater. Maybe the theater makes people feel like something is being done, but it doesn't mean your actually doing something.

Continue wearing masks at all times in public, forever social distancing, presenting paperwork for services, bi-weekly covid testing, booster shots every 3 months, mandates that enforce segregation, and possible denial of services.
You really want this as a way of life?

At least for now there’s always Australia to point to when it comes to government overreach, so Oregon doesn’t look quite so bad.
