Oregonians growing weary of excessive mandates
Oregon's Governor Kate Brown has again announced updates to county risk levels under the stateâ€™s public health framework.
With total hospitalizations above 300 people statewide, 15 counties will move to the Extreme Risk level effective Friday, April 30 through Thursday, May 6. In addition, nine counties will be in the High Risk level, four at Moderate Risk, and eight at Lower Risk.
Governor Kate Brown pleaded with Oregonian's who may be growing tired of the same rhetoric repeated so many times by the controversial governor, and gave the following statement:
â€œIf we donâ€™t act now, doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other health care providers in Oregon will be stretched to their limits treating cases of COVID-19,â€ said Governor Brown. â€œTodayâ€™s announcement will save lives and help stop COVID-19 hospitalizations from spiking. It will take all of us working together to bring this back under control.â€
The following 15 counties have now been designated as Extreme Risk counties:
Malheur County has now been moved from lower risk to Moderate Risk, and Hood River and Umatilla Counties were moved from Moderate Risk to High Risk by Governor Kate Brown. Benton, Clatsop, Coos, Jefferson, Lincoln, Washington, and Yamhill Counties will unfortunately remain in High Risk of Covid category.
â€œOur businesses allow people to gather in places with standardized safety measures. We
shouldnâ€™t shut them down", said House Republican Leader Christine Drazan (R-Canby.) They are doing everything they can to reduce the spread of COVID-19 under existing rules."
