Oregon Governor Kate Brown is telling residents to call the police if they see their neighbors violating CCP virus restrictions.

That’s after she recently announced a two-week freeze, aiming to slow down a rise in virus cases there.

Now, social gatherings are limited to six people in the state and attendees should not be from more than two households.

Residents who break the rule could face a $1,000 fine or even be put in jail.

Talking to KGW-TV, Brown said that this is no different than if people violate noise ordinances.

“What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that,” Brown said.

In communist China, during the Mao Zedong era, the practice was implemented throughout the country, which encouraged the public to spy on and inform each other about anything that was against communist politics.
