COVID-19 Updates - May 19, 2021

On May 18, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) released updated guidance about masks and physical distancing requirements for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Under the updated guidance, individuals who are fully vaccinated with proof of vaccination status are not required to wear a mask, face covering or face shield, or maintain physical distancing EXCEPT:

  • In health care settings.
  • In adult jails and correctional facilities.
  • In youth detention and correctional facilities.
  • In shelters and transitional housing.
  • In K-12 schools. (Fully vaccinated individuals must comply with Ready School, Safe Learners (RSSL) guidance face covering requirements).
  • On planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States.
  • In U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and bus stations.
  • In other settings where the owner or operator continues to apply and enforce the mask, face covering and face shield guidance and physical distancing requirements in state COVID-19 guidance.

In public settings where vaccination status is not checked, masks will still be required. Finally, businesses and venue operators remain free to establish their own, more restrictive policies regarding mask usage.
