Governor Brown issues statewide mask requirement

Update! After I sent out a newsletter today encouraging POP members to ask Wasco County Commissioners to vote to require masks in our county in public, Governor Kate Brown took it out of their hands. Starting Wednesday, Oregon will have a statewide mask requirement in public places. So how about flooding the Governor's office with post cards or emails thanking her for her leadership and the courage to save lives.
