I have not heard that we have sufficient testing and contact tracing resources. We only have 24 ICU beds at St. Charles Bend. Tourists will bring in the virus from other parts of Oregon.

Those who aren’t haven’t been educating themselves about Covid-19. People will come, cases will increase and we will be in worse shape then we started. If lucky enough to survive you are not the same.

Yes, it inevitably will spike when we start congregating again. No way to avoid it unless and until the virus is completly eradicated...which will take much more time than is being considered.

SHEAR GOVERNMENTAL GOOFBALL IGNORANCE!!! We haven't dealt with this killer long enough to make this decision yet. We'll now see a harrowing reflection on just how UGLY this mutant virus WILL GET!!!

As i typically practice universal precautions every day of the year, and rarely get sick, I will proceed in the same manner. If people are compromised, they should never go out. Never.

More testing is going to show more results. Our death rate for positive tests is 2% We're pretty good.

More and more experts are saying this whole thing is a "nothing burger" as far as flu's go. Children rarely get it. Adults have no problem unless underlying conditions. Move on.

I am not going to let fear run my life. I never did from the beginning and I still wont. This virus will be around just like all the other viruses. Its not going to just go away. Best to accept that.

It will happen, but if reasonable cautions are used it should minor.

I do not believe it will end until everyone is exposed or there is a vaccine. It could mutate and become more deadly like the Spanish flu so personally I would rather be infected and get it over with.

Not too worried as long as we use some sense in opening back up. However the right-wing nitwits who are protesting are not helping matters any.

With covid and the governor lowering standards for graduation, a standardized test is necessary . We need better educated students and graduates.

Absolutley especially important since lockdowns...our children's education has suffered, and we need to get back reading, writing, arithmetic and foster critical thinking once again.
