  1. The OHA reports that 5 more people in Oregon died today from old age and pre-existing conditions that had nothing to do with Covid-19. Glad I could clear that up for you. Typos can be so misleading.

    1. “It’s important to note that denial is a valid psychological response. It’s the first stage of grief, and it’s also a common way that we “deal” with our fear of death.”

  2. What a bunch of stupid people, go stick your head under the sand – don’t wear your mask but stay away from me and mine. Have a nice day, hope you get sick!!

    1. Dr. Joseph Varon, CMO of United Memorial Medical Center , said, “I’m fighting two wars simultaneously, one is COVID-19 & another one is ‘Stupidity'”.

  3. The AP decries four new deaths to covid in Hong Kong… Fact-

    Number of deaths per 1 million population-
    Hong Kong- (5)
    Oregon- (79)
    NY- (1686)

    America needs to mind its own business !

      1. So why is the County closed and not open 100% for business ? Why are schools shut down- businesses under threat of fines and loss of license for opening- why are the people of Lane County still under house arrest- being told what to wear- where to go- how many can come visit over Labor Day- why are those good folks still being financially punished by the Governor ???

        Lane County sounds like a perfect place to re-open Oregon- so why isn’t it happening ?
