For anyone holding out hope that at some point this COVID insanity will end, Oregon is the first state to crush that.
INDOOR MASKING IN OREGON — It's likely here to STAY.
Today, @OHAOregon worked with stakeholders (like those in the restaurant industry, business assoc., etc.) to discuss making the current indoor mask mandate permanent.#LiveOnK2 pic.twitter.com/r0gkNnWfsi

COVID has become endemic. It’s here to stay. Hopefully through mutations, vaccination, and therapeutics, it will be like the flu, a seasonal annoyance with a low mortality rate, and we all get on with our lives.
That also means any COVID restrictions based on cases will be permanent, as it will always be floating around like the flu.
Constant, never-ending, permanent COVID protocols and restrictions.
Oregon was first, who is next?
