Authoritarian mandates like this is why counties are demanding secession from Oregon.
In a move resembling something out of Nazi Germany, the state of Oregon wants businesses and houses of worship to demand vaccine papers if you want to breathe fresh air.
Instead of relying on the honor system used in many settings across the country, Oregon’s deep-blue politicians want Oregonians to pry for private medical information from their neighbors.
Whether you decide to inject the experimental COVID-19 vaccine into your body, that should be your business.
Nobody has the right to know.
If businesses and places of worship don’t comply, Oregon Governor Kate Brown wants them to keep mask mandates and social distancing policies in place.
So, masks are essentially permanent in Oregon.
Experimental injection or not.
No wonder so many counties want to join Idaho.

Just got off a media call with Oregon state epidemiologist Dr. Dean Sidelinger. A LOT of questions regarding how vaccine status will be verified for unmasked business customers. I asked him if customers can simply verbally confirm of if they'll have to show proof. pic.twitter.com/XHLBFFeJjK

Notorious vaccine passport advocate and former Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen cheered Oregon’s tyrannical ruling:
Oregon has it right–honor system can't be trusted. "…businesses that do not want to implement vaccine verification can keep current health & safety measures in place, which includes masks & physical distancing for all individuals.” @OregonGovernorBrown https://t.co/eFjC1DFRNA

From the Daily Caller:
As of Wednesday, May 19, the Oregon Health Authority requires businesses, employers and religious institutions to enforce the mask mandate on individuals who have not received the COVID-19 vaccination.
Businesses, employers and faith institutions must ask individuals show proof they have received the coronavirus vaccine prior to entering their facilities without a mask, according to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). Individuals who do not have not received the vaccine – or individuals who do not have proof of receiving the vaccine – must continue to wear a mask inside Oregon’s establishments, according to the OHA’s website. Only those who are vaccinated may remove their masks, OHA’s website states.
“Businesses, employers and faith institutions now have the option to adjust their masking guidance to allow fully vaccinated individuals to no longer wear a mask in their establishments,” OHA’s website states.
On May 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or social distance unless required by federal, state, local, tribal or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local businesses.
Oregon is one of 17 states and the District of Columbia that have some form of a mask mandate in place, according to U.S. News & World Report.
LifeSite News added commentary:
The New York Times stressed the idea that it could be “dangerous” for employees to ask people for their proof of vaccination, and it cited the concerns of Oregon Business and Industry’s Nathaniel Brown that the state was demanding too much from “frontline workers.”
“We have serious concerns about the practicality of requiring business owners and workers to be the enforcer,” Brown said.
“We are hearing from retailers and small businesses who are concerned about putting their frontline workers in a potentially untenable position when dealing with customers.”
For her part, Governor Brown has indicated that Oregon businesses may continue to ask all employees and customers to wear masks, if they’d rather not ask for papers.
“Some businesses may prefer to simply continue operating under the current guidance for now rather than worrying about vaccination status, and that’s fine,” Brown said last week.
People in Oregon were only recently freed from the state-imposed rule to wear masks when outdoors. Earlier this month the New York Times reported that “there is not a single documented Covid infection anywhere in the world from casual outdoor interactions, such as walking past someone on a street or eating at a nearby table.”
