While Hood River County is under Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s directive to require face coverings in indoor public places, that doesn’t mean people have to wear a mask all the time. County Health Officer Dr. Christopher Van Tilburg says you don’t have to put a face covering on in the morning and leave it on all day. He says simply wear it when going into public indoor locations like the grocery store or the pharmacy. North Central Public Health District Health Officer Mimi McDonell recommended to the Wasco County Commission that they opt-in to the Governor’s face covering directive, and that panel will consider it at a meeting this coming Wednesday. The state of Washington has a similar directive from Governor Jay Inslee starting on Friday.
