YES but I threw them away a long time ago, these mandates were all wrong from the beginning! Horrible communistic, socialist injustice! Long term mask wearing weakens your immune system. The shutdowns hurt Us far worse than the virus itself! I never got it! My 84 year old mother did but NO symptoms!

Haven't been wearing a mask for months. I actually follow the science.

The only reason I wore one was to keep my friends and neighbors from having their businesses shut down.

Oregon had some of the best stats for covid because of the mask mandate and it's not over yet. People will screw it up.

After I go into a place that has them for you when you walk in, I just put them back into the box that I got them out of for the next person.

Never! As we have learned, pandemics are easier to start now, So I will definitely keep the many masks I have.... cloth, blue hospital, duck-face... all of them!!

We may need them again. Also, it is smart to wear them in the flu season. Look at how much less flu we had during the pandemic. Also, the mask is not the only safeguard. We were (supposedly) washing our hands more, keeping a safe distance from others and staying away from others while sick.

Good masks are still recommend, just not required in most situations. I work in healthcare and we are still required. Why take unnecessary chances? Do you drive at night with your lights off?

I'm keeping the good ones for dust masks, if nothing else. The cloth ones I've already discarded.

No Based on the fact that Brown has proven she can't be trusted about dropping mask mandates. I expect her to reinstate it just to get her name back in the news. I hope I am wrong.

I have a business literally across the street from their office/dump location and still get consistently missed on recycling. I have been missed regularly on garbage as well. The city has the ability to pull their contract if this continues.

I live in Crook County. We went a whole month without recycle pick up. The service is always on FB because of inconsistent service. We went two weeks with no garbage pickup. It's like this all over the city as well as out of city limits! VERY FRUSTRATING when you're paying for a service!

LOL. In Crooked River Ranch - we don't know what 'recycling' is. The garbage company totally did away with it. So - I feel no sympathy for some of you who have 'delays'.
