      I managed to track down the official guidance at https://sharedsystems.dhsoha.state.or.us/DHSForms/Served/le3727.pdf which I found finally at https://govstatus.egov.com/OR-OHA-COVID-19 .

      All businesses, employers and faith institutions are required to:
      • Continue to apply and enforce the mask, face covering and face shield guidance, and physical distancing requirements in state COVID-19 guidance to all individuals unless a business, employer or faith institution:
       Has a policy for checking for proof of vaccination status of individuals; and
       Requests proof of vaccination status from each individual; and
       Reviews each individual’s proof of vaccination prior to entry or admission.
      A business, employer or faith institution that has a policy for requesting and checking for proof of vaccination and requests and reviews proof of vaccination may permit fully vaccinated individuals with proof of vaccination to go without a mask, face covering or face shield, and does not need to enforce physical distancing requirements for such individuals.

      Now for the tricky part – what’s proof of vaccination?

      • “Proof of vaccination status” means documentation provided by a tribal, federal, state or local government, or a health care provider, that includes an individual’s name, date of birth, type of COVID-19 vaccination given, date or dates given, depending on whether it is a one-dose or two-dose vaccine, and the name/location of the health care provider or site where the vaccine was administered. Documentation may include, but is not limited to, COVID-19 vaccination record card, or a copy or digital picture of the vaccination record card.

      So apparently that awkward vaccination card that was going to be a reminder is going to the proof of vaccination and in Oregon you’re going to have to show it if businesses are going to allow you to enter without a mask.

      So far, every business I have been (just a couple after this announcement) in is keeping the mask requirements rather than trying to deal with being vaccine police, and I suspect that’ll be true in the majority of cases.

      Leave the enforcement to business and individuals.

      I’ll be leaving the mask on until infections become negligible.
