FWW Employment Alert - Updated Oregon Mask Guidance


On November 18, 2020, the Oregon Health Authority issued new, stricter Statewide Freeze Guidance on Masks, Face Coverings and Face Shields, following Governor Kate Brown’s issuance of a new Executive Order 20-65. Effective November 18, 2020, the new mask guidance requires that all individuals statewide (with certain specified exceptions) wear masks, face coverings or face shields at all times, unless the person is:
  • at home,
  • in their own car,
  • under the age of 5,
  • eating or drinking,
  • engaged in an activity that makes mask wearing not feasible, such as when taking a shower,
  • sleeping, 
  • briefly removing the face covering to confirm the person’s identity as may be required (such as at a bank or when interacting with law enforcement), or
  • in a private, individual workspace.
