Mask Mandate Lifting

The Oregon Health Authority announced that by March 31, the indoor mask mandate would be lifted and based on new modeling, the lift timeline was moved up to March 19. The lift included schools but it is still unclear whether LOSD will continue on the same timeline as the state.

“We are anticipating additional updates from the OHA, Oregon Department of Education and Clackamas County Public Health Department regarding safety protocols for quarantine, contact tracing, and testing, which will inform our local planning,” said Dr. Jennifer Schiele the superintendent of LOSD in an email sent out February 24.

While this news might seem exciting for many, there is still a lot of worry about outbreaks. LOSD is continuing to encourage  students and staff to wear masks after the mandate is lifted.

The Oregon Health Authority announced that by March 31, the indoor mask mandate would be lifted. In a press release on February 7, the OHA stated that no later then the end of March would the mandate be lifted.
