Understanding Oregon’s face mask mandate


PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — As part of Oregon’s reopening process, face coverings will be required starting June 24 while in indoor public spaces.

This is the case for Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Hood River, Marion, Polk, and Lincoln counties.

Christina Baumann, MD, Health Officer for Washington County joined AM Extra Wednesday to discuss the requirement further.
