All city of Portland employees must be vaccinated by Oct. 18 or face termination, according to a copy of a letter sent to city employees that was released to media outlets on Monday.
By Sept. 10, employees must show proof of vaccination, proof that they are in the process of getting vaccinated or applying for a medical or religious exemption that meets legal standards. All employees who cannot provide this will be put on a list for “separation from employment” and have until Oct. 10 to complete the vaccine series or the exemption process. - KGW
A gunfight in Portland, Oregon, last week is intensifying concerns over escalating violence during contentious rallies in the city, as far-right demonstrators and anti-fascist counter-protesters have repeatedly faced off.
The Portland police bureau charged a 65-year-old man from Gresham, Oregon, over a gunfight in the city’s downtown during violent clashes on Sunday. Authorities say Dennis Anderson drew a concealed handgun and shot at a group of anti-fascists who were trying to expel him from the area. At least one of the anti-fascists shot back, according to authorities, with seven shots exchanged between the two sides. - The Guardian
