I've had contact with people who tested positive in my circle. Recently, I required surgery. Because I was around someone who tested positive for Covid-19, I had to get the test. I tested negative and was able to get my required surgery. Was it a hassle? Yes. It was. However, all my caregivers went out of their way to thank me. Every one of them had a story to relay of how the Corona Virus has affected their everyday lives. This is a very real issue. I am so very grateful I was able to get the necessary surgery so that I can still do my job every day.

Some people are not so fortunate. People have lost their jobs due to Covid-19. Businesses are being closed due to Covid-19. Governor Kate Brown obviously feels it necessary for Oregonians to mask up outdoors. She reinstated the order in asking people to mask up where physical distancing cannot be re-inforced. Oregon has seen a surge in positive covid cases.

The outdoor mask mandate went into effect today. (Friday, August 27th.) If you missed it above, watch the Governor's order for action below.
