PORTLAND, Ore.-- The Oregon Liquor Control Commission released its findings of compliance with social distancing and masks after the Fourth of July Weekend.

Tuesday, the agency said most of the state is following Gov. Kate Brown's requirements to wear a mask indoors and adhere to social distancing guidelines. Officials from OLCC visited over 800 businesses from July 3 through July 6. The agency said they did not find any violations and general compliance in the Portland Metro Area and the Salem Region.

However, when officials visited 38 businesses in the Eugene Region, which consists of Lane, Linn, Lincoln, Douglas, and Benton County, officials found violations and widespread non-compliance. Most of the businesses that were not complying were in the Newport area.

Other regions of the state got high marks from OLCC except for the downtown district in Bend. Officials from the OLCC found violations throughout the area.

After OLCC finishes their investigation, officials from the agency said they will hand over their reporters to OSHA and disciplinary action. OSHA will take any disciplinary action against those businesses in violation.
