From May 13, 2021

"In light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) May 13 announcement regarding masking guidance, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reviewed and updated Oregon’s official masking guidance. This page was updated on May 19, 2021 to reflect those updates.

Note: Businesses, employers and faith institutions now have the option to adjust their masking guidance to allow fully vaccinated individuals to no longer wear a mask in their establishments. Businesses, employers and faith institutions doing so must have a policy in place to check the vaccination status of all individuals before they enter their establishment. Businesses, employers and faith institutions who do not create such policies will maintain the same masking guidance listed below, regardless of an individual's vaccination status."
