At a press conference on Friday, Brown warned, "In the race between vaccines and variants, right now the variants have the upper hand."
She said several counties are "on the verge of having to reinstate extreme risk restrictions on businesses and activities." As of Friday, however, Yamhill County, which is in the high risk category, was not among them.
"At this moment, we are moving backwards. Oregon needs to be moving forward," Brown said. "My goal is to get the state back on track to lift the restrictions this pandemic has forced upon us — I think we can get there by the start of summer, but we will all need to work together."
