Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announces 2-week coronavirus ‘freeze’ As the nation cracks down on group activities so close to the Thanksgiving holiday, Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat , has told Oregon ‘s residents to call the cops if they see coronavirus violations.
“This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said in an interview Friday . “What do neighbors do [in that case]? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”
The governor ordered a two-week freeze that includes limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than six people from no more than two households in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
