The insane liberal Oregon Governor Kate Brown, who does nothing about tens of thousands of rioters and protesters who’ve been going non stop in Portland for four months now, has done the unthinkable. She’s extended the emergency mandate for masks and coronavirus until election day November 3rd.
Apparently this only applies to law abiding citizens, because the Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs that are covering the streets of Portland do not seem to be impacted one bit.
Here is the governors ridiculous statement below:
“When I last extended the COVID-19 state of emergency in June, I told Oregonians that we were at a crossroads: we could work together to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon, or we could watch infections and hospitalizations spike,” Gov. Brown said. “Now, six months after this crisis began, we have made progress. Together, we have slowed the spread of this disease. Oregon has one of the lowest mortality rates in the country. But, as students across Oregon begin a school year far different than any other before, it is clear that, at current COVID-19 levels, it will not be safe in much of the state for children to return to in-classroom instruction for months to come.”
“This Labor Day weekend is another critical moment in this crisis,” continued Gov. Brown. “We can work together to stay safe and put Oregon on the path to return more students to classrooms. Or, we could see Labor Day celebrations unknowingly sow the seeds of COVID-19 outbreaks that could set us back for months. Until there is an effective vaccine for COVID-19, this disease can spread like wildfire if we let our guard down. Small social get-togethers like barbecues and family celebrations have fueled wider community outbreaks in counties across Oregon. This weekend, you have a choice. Please, stay local this Labor Day, and practice safe COVID-19 habits. Wear a face covering, watch your physical distance, and wash your hands.”
The state of emergency is now in place through Nov. 3.
Have you ever seen a bigger oxymoron America than this governor?
