Oregon is taking their big government overreach to a whole new level by making a move for a permanent indoor mask mandate.
Authorities are making ground in permanently mandating face masks while in doors in the state of Oregon.
“The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) convened a Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) on Thursday. The RAC provided feedback on the indoor mask rule. The point of the committee is to suggest what should and shouldn’t be included in the ruling and discuss the impact it will have on the public.”
Several community stakeholders joined in the meeting about permanent face coverings even while indoors.
Yes — that may sound alarming. Here's what you need to know about it:— Genevieve Reaume (@GenevieveReaume) December 3, 2021
-The current rule is temporary. It can't be in place more than 180 days.
-Making the rule permanent allows the state to keep the rule.
-The rule can be repealed.#LiveOnK2 pic.twitter.com/qEZAeExxu8
When the OHA publicly announces its intention to make the rule permanent, a period of public comment will follow, although that is largely meaningless and the mandate is likely to be rubber stamped.
Dr. Paul Cieslak, the medical director for communicable diseases and immunizations with OHA, defended the proposal by ludicrously attempting to argue that permanent doesn’t mean permanent.
In other words, once the mask rule is imposed for permanent indoor mask mandate, it will never be repealed unless Republicans win the state, something that hasn’t happened since 1984.
