PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced Monday a tougher crowd size limit across the state by banning indoor gatherings of more than ten people and requiring face coverings outside if the situation won’t allow for proper social distancing.

The new mask requirement goes into affect on Wednesday, July 15th.

Governor Brown said that enforcement of the mask requirement would continue to fall on businesses.

State health officials pointed to events like birthday parties and family get-togethers as the primary source of new cases.
