Pandemic restrictions will be lifted statewide by Wednesday, 6-30-21

Oregon will lift pandemic limits in place for over a year no later than next week, Gov. Kate Brown said Friday. Gov.

“When Oregon reaches 70% or by Wednesday, June 30, we will lift the safety programs we have relied on and open our economy,” Brown said .

When the deadline passes or the goal is met, the county-by-county risk level system will be dissolved.

“Effectively, Oregon is 100% open for business,” she said.


Brown had announced last month that mandates on masks, social distancing and capacity limits of restaurants and venues would be lifted as soon as 70% of all eligible adult Oregonians had received at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccine.
