A word from Oregon Health Authority...

Oregon adjusts guidelines for wearing masks and physical distancing indoors and outdoors

Salem, Ore. - Oregon Health Authority (OHA) today released updated guidance about mask and physical distancing requirements for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Under the updated guidance, people who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear a mask indoors, in most public settings where vaccination status is checked. In public settings where vaccination status is not checked, masks will still be required. Finally, businesses and venue operators remain free to establish their own, more restrictive policies regarding mask usage. Learn more here.

In addition to exempting people who are fully vaccinated from mask requirements in most indoor settings, OHA health experts announced that mask requirements no longer apply to anyone who is outdoors.

The latest news from U.S. Chamber of Commerce...

What’s Happening (OSCC Political Observations)

It’s crunch time in the Legislature as we move into the final six weeks of the 2021 session.
We keep thinking the pace will pick up anytime now. There is some evidence this is starting to happen. Last Friday was the ‘posting deadline’ for the second chamber. Bills had to be posted for a work session on Friday, May 14th in order to advance out of the second chamber committees. Any bill not posted is considered dead.
Those bills that were posted must be officially voted out of committee by Friday, May 28th, otherwise they too will die.
Policy committees will shut down on May 28th - leaving only Rules, Revenue and the Joint Ways and Means Committees open for business.

6 Email Subject Lines That Get Clicks

Your email content can be the best ever but if people don’t open your emails, the emails might as well be blank.

Two things make recipients click: who it’s from and how appealing the subject line is. In that order. That’s one reason I advise businesses to send their emails from a person (or at least an email that resembles one), not “no-reply@biz.

But how do you make your subject lines more irresistible? How do you inspire clicks and drive them to open your emails? Try these types of emails.
