INFO ON FACE COVERINGS

https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le2288K.pdf Updated October 19, 2020

  • “Face covering” means a cloth, paper, or disposable face covering that covers the nose and the mouth.

  • “Face shield” means a clear plastic shield that covers the forehead, extends below the chin, and wraps around the sides of the face.

  • “Mask” means a medical grade mask.

Starting July 24: Children age 5 and up are required to wear a mask, face shield or face covering. Face coverings are now required when exercising indoors, plus outdoors when you can’t physically distance. People with a disability or medical condition may request accommodation from the business if they cannot wear a mask, face shield or face covering.

Exemptions to Face Covering Requirements

Do you have to have proof of a disability or medical condition to allow someone to enter a business without a face covering, or can you take their word for it?

  • Requiring proof of a disability, such as a doctor’s note, would be a violation of state and federal public accommodations laws regarding people with disabilities. 

  • Oregon’s public accommodations laws make it unlawful to make any distinction, discrimination or restriction because a customer or patron is an individual with a disability. This provision is to be construed to the fullest extent possible with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  

  • You don’t have to have proof and should not ask for proof of a disability.

  • Having a disability does not mean that you get an exemption from the face covering requirement. A place of public accommodation (like a business) should make accommodations so that the goods or services are available to the person. 

  • Private businesses must make reasonable modifications for persons with disabilities who cannot wear a face mask in public places. Reasonable modifications might include: 

    • Allowing a person to wear a scarf, loose face covering, or full face shield instead of a face mask;

    • Allowing customers to place orders online or by phone for curbside pick-up or no-contact delivery; or 

    • Offering appointments by video or phone. 

    • Decisions on requests for accommodation should be decided in a timely manner.

Tips regarding harassment & the inability to wear a face covering

  • Stay calm, explain you are unable to wear a mask but want to keep everyone safe, so you will gladly stay 6 feet away

  • Call ahead for accomodations. By feeling prepared, this can help reduce anxiety.

  • Empathize and understand before judging or coming to conclusions.
