After telling us that everything would return to normal after enough people received the vaccines, and after telling us that the vaccines are effective, Multnomah County President Deborah Kafoury has announced a new mask mandate that will go into effect this Friday, August 13.
Through an executive order, Kafoury requires that everyone over the age of 5 wear a mask when inside public buildings. Along with doctors from OHSU and other area hospitals, as well as Portland Public Schools Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero, Kafoury and his sycophants made the announcement during a Zoom public meeting Monday afternoon, reading carefully prepared statements.
To no one’s surprise, none of these officials wore masks, and some of them appear to be approaching from workplaces, particularly the doctors. You can clearly see the office-like settings in the background. These include OHSU Dr. Renee Edwards, Kaiser Permanente Dr. Mary Giswold, and Guerrero.

Multnomah County is reinstating a mandatory mask mandate for indoor public settings beginning Friday.
Multnomah County President Deborah Kafoury announced the executive order for everyone age 5 and older in closed public settings, regardless of vaccination.
The new requirement begins on August 13 and, according to Kafoury, “It will be enforced.” People could face fines of up to $ 1,000, but Kafoury said they will start with education before the fines.
Portland Public Schools Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero also spoke at the press conference and expressed her support for the new mandate. He said it helps protect students, who will also need to wear masks at school.
Jennifer Vines, a health officer for Multnomah County, said the delta variant is to blame for the new requirement.
“A vaccinated person can still get a mild infection and can still be contagious, so we ask everyone to wear a mask indoors,” Vines said.
Last week, the state announced a massive increase in so-called breakthrough cases, where Covid can still infect people who have received the vaccines. 20% of the last cases are attributed to vaccinated people..
Meanwhile, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown is hesitant to issue statewide mandates, admitting that it is now a political issue, rather than a health issue. by stating that “political will” does not exist to institute another round of lockdowns and mask requirements.
Guerrero has been the subject of a few other Gateway Pundit articles. Under his supervision, the school district has delivered social justice planning guides to students praising Che Guevara and Black Panthers, has ordered school officials to help “undocumented students” evade ICE agents, and various Teachers have been embroiled in a variety of scandals. , including sex scandals.
Kafoury is considering running for governor. Because apparently people aren’t content with limiting massive homelessness, rising crime, record shootings, record homicides, dilapidated roads, high taxes, and skyrocketing housing costs in the Portland area alone, and they prefer that the whole state ends like this.
