This Thanksgiving, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown is encouraging citizens to call the police on their neighbors who violate her latest executive order, which includes a six-person limit from two households maximum on in-home gatherings.
“Look, this is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake. What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy,” the Democratic governor explained. “This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”
Anonymous reporting systems have been implemented across U.S. county health departments and on college campuses where students are encouraged to turn in fellow classmates who violate university COVID rules.
