      1. Check out Norway. Around 1% of the population are wearing masks regularly and their rates of infection and death are among the lowest in Europe. They have a similar population density to Oregon and their Covid-19 numbers are similar to ours. But only about 1% of them admit to wearing masks in public. The situation is similar in Australia and New Zealand. Draw your own conclusions, but these are reported facts.

        1. You’re only mentioning part of it. Their lockdown was far more restricting than ours, starting in February with extensive testing and tracing and closed borders. And they adhered to the social distancing. In The Local, they state that with people starting back to work that they are now recommending the use of masks but they don’t want people to become complacent in relying on them as a substitute for social distancing and hand washing. There always seems to be more to the story…..And Americans seem to be having a big problem with the social distancing.

    1. I wear a mask because I care about other human beings, and because I can function in a society without adult supervision. I wear a mask because I care more about your parents more than you seem to. I wear a mask because it doesn’t cost me anything, it doesn’t hurt, and it keeps my friends safe. I wear a mask because my wife has sewing skills and she loves me enough to make me a cool tie-dye mask. I wear a mask because I have respect for others, whether they respect me or not.

      1. i refuse to wear a mask because i got nothing to hide nor fear, and they offer no protection. i know what the masks are good for, i wore them for 40 years in the construction trades.

    1. Hey someone who gets it. Number of cases rising does….not….matter. Number of deaths (if counted correctly) is all that matters along with hospital bed utilization which is still extremely low. Along with keeping covid away from nursing homes…. These are all that matter. New cases rising will just cause fear mongering because people like TreHgr and others here don’t get it.

      1. But those who don’t get ill or very ill can still spread it to those who can get VERY ill or die from it. Hence, all the attention some deride as ‘fear-mongering.’ LOTS more cases make that more likely.

        1. Wow Barney you are regurgitating the left’s false argument. You obviously have reading comprehension problems as I’ve already explained that you take precautions for those in nursing homes and for those 65 and older that are still independent can decide for themselves on what to do and take their own precautions. For everyone else it is about as deadly as a seasonal flu according to the data.

  1. Pendleton cases continues to keep up with downtown Portland.
    I sure wish we could find out if these 8 Deschutes cases are spread around or all in one business in Redmond or all in one church in Bend or what.

  2. Well, the economy is opening up and our economy happens to be tourism. That means more people that lack the basic responsibility and common sense to protect themselves and others, which in turn means more infections. Be careful what you wish for.

  3. I know this is asking a lot, but my big hope for the world today is to come home from work tonight and look at the news and not see that Trump has done something incredibly awful or stupid.

  4. Remember when the new infection number was under 100? What was the difference then? OH, RIGHT. Shelter-in-place. How’s the economy going to do with double, triple, quadruple, or more infections? We don’t see mortality data from this wave yet because it takes weeks to actually die from this disease. The US is just a third-world country with smartphones anymore. Thank your president.
