Coronavirus: States impose targeted lockdowns, curfews, mask mandates ahead of Thanksgiving

  • Without a cohesive federal plan, state and local officials are reinstituting some of the stay-at-home orders, curfews and other public safety measures.
  • Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, announced a “two-week” freeze Friday on most activities and nonessential businesses across the state.
  • Even Republican governors, many of whom have long resisted statewide lockdowns and mask requirements, are now imposing curfews and starting to order residents to wear face coverings in public.
