OHA updates face covering guidance for specific counties

OHA said Friday that it has updated the mask guidance document for residents of Clackamas, Hood River, Lincoln, Marion, Multnomah, Polk and Washington counties — the counties where masks are required for indoor public spaces.

"In these counties, face covering use is required in all businesses and for the general public when visiting these businesses and for the general public when visiting indoor spaces open to the public," public health officials said.

The Governor also released general guidance for the use of face coverings in counties beyond the specified counties.

In those guidelines, indoor spaces are defined as spaces, whether publicly owned or privately owned, “where the public has access by right or invitation, express or implied, whether by payment of money or not.”

In addition to the public areas of the businesses those spaces include building lobbies or common spaces, elevators, and buildings or meeting rooms outside of private homes where people gather for social, civic, cultural or religious purpose
