I have helped form the Oregon Public Health Coalition, composed of several local organizations (see below). We are coalescing around Oregon’s response to COVID. We now invite health care providers and the general public to sign on.
Our first effort is a communication to Governor Brown. We support Governor Brown’s efforts on COVID thus far and ask her to strengthen Oregon’s response in the following areas:
Universal Masking: Require masks in all workplaces, not just public facing.
Comprehensive Testing: Increase access to testing.
Tracing and Notification: Build up our public health infrastructure.
Isolation and Quarantine Relief: Support Oregonians in the difficulties presented by quarantining and isolating oneself/family in order to slow COVID.
Local PPE: Oregon can be a leader and innovator and become self-sufficient in designing and manufacturing PPE.
The full document, Oregon Public Health Coalition's Principles and Measures, can be found here.
Our coalition includes Oregon Nurses Association (ONA), SEIU (Service Employees International Union), PCUN (Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste), AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations), AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), and the Oregon Law Center.
Show your support for these measures by signing on here.
This letter and signees will be presented to Governor Brown the week of August 3, accompanied by a press release.
For questions or concerns, please contact me.
