Oregon Governor Wants Businesses To Be Gatekeepers For The Unvaccinated – UncoverDC

Governor Kate Benson wants to the lead the nation with vaccination passports expecting businesses to check for the unvaccinated.

“Oregon Governor, Kate Brown, wants her state to pave the way for adopting what some see as vaccine passports. On May 18, Brown issued, effective immediately, new “interim guidance for fully vaccinated individuals” that would effectively segregate those who are vaccinated and those who are not and make businesses responsible for policing the policy.

According to the guidance for the enforcement of masks and physical distancing, a business is defined as:

“an individual, organization or entity engaged in commercial, industrial, or professional activities, and includes the sectors listed in the Oregon Health Authority’s sector risk level guidance chart such as eating and drinking establishments, indoor recreation and fitness establishments, indoor entertainment establishments, retail stores, indoor and outdoor shopping centers and malls, outdoor recreation and fitness establishments, outdoor entertainment establishments, and personal services providers.”

Health Care settings, Transportation hubs, public transportation systems, schools, jails, youth detention centers, shelters, and transitional housing are all places that—under the new guidance—will continue to be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing.”
