"look, we can all easily survive this, just wear a mask, that's all you have to do, it's that simple, we'll even make them available to you almost everywhere, to the point where you can ask for one at any business and they'll probably give you one free" "mmm, nah" see how dumb you guys sound? 😐

Look at the numbers going up, I am fully vaccinated and have kept wearing a mask. This thing isn't over and we each need to do our part to keep everyone safe, even those who won't or can't get the vaccine.

My 70 yr. old sister tested positive her husband never did. They both got vaccinated anyway. You will get the virus or you won't simple fact. NO MASKS!

If a person wants to wear them that is fine. But my Doctor advised me NOT to wear one and even gave me a note to carry making me exempt. Only problem is that businesses refuse to acknowledge the note.

Private business owners have too many rights. Big Government should make them subservient to any yay-hoo that walks in their doors demanding to do as they please.

The virus goes right through the mask. Masks are worthless as Fauci first pointed out when this SCAMDEMIC first started. Wake up this is SOCIALISM.

If your vaccine worked in the first place why are things "just now" getting worse?

There comes a point where we have to move on. The vaccine is available to all people over 12...either get it, or don't, but stop micro-managing people. I am vaccinated, and will continue to vaccinate going forward. We have to reach herd immunity somehow...since the variants won't stop.

NO, NO and by the way NO!!! We will NOT comply with any more of that. If you are vaccinated it is absurd to be told to wear a mask!!! If they can tell us to wear masks, why cant they tell everyone to get vaccinated??? Whats the difference? everyone just get vaccinated so we can get past this!!!

We are all going to die someday let's face it. Damn the masks! This virus may kill a lot more people vaccinated or not. I hope I live long enough to see those who created it go before me.

People who are at risk because they couldn't get one or both booster shots should be responsible for their own safety much like others with, say, an autoimmune disease. Those who chose to not get vaccinated are alone responsible for the risk they have put themselves into.

This reflects the failure of Oregon's education system. Is it more focused toward social issues than reading, writing and arithmetic?

OF COURSE IT IS. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR KIDS ANYMORE. IT IS ALL ABOUT STAYING IN CONTROL OF EVERYONE. THE LESS A PERSON KNOWS, THE EASIER TO CONTROL.

Homeless camps should not be set up in the city, especially not in residential or commercial areas, There should be county or BLM land available on the outskirts of the city, if you drive along China Hat road there are already a lot of homeless people camping out on BLM land.

No not BLM land either. We used to go out there for fun, now we don’t cause it’s too scary.

It's insane to expect Bend city property to fill up with trash as it is bound to do with homelessness. We need to be responsible to our citizens and keep Bend from degrading into cities like Salem and Portland!

I drive by Hunnel Road everyday on my work. I have seen everything from drugged out, to drug deals to pants on the ground. It's not safe for anyone with the growing pile of refuse and abandon derelict vehicles. There have been efforts to relocate and help , yet the people living seem to want that.

It is not helping anyone by letting then live on the streets and in the conditions that I personally see on a daily basis. Quit letting people build million dollar homes and put in some housing that will give these people a place to live and give them a hand up, not a hand out!

Bend has a large service type of employment. For a lot of these people, low cost housing near places they work barely exist. Add to that the many who are homeless because of wildfires, it will get worse. Time for the state, county, city to create housing. People need a place to live with dignity

Housing is inaccessible to many people who have grown up here. That is the problem. Shoving it under the rug and out of sight won't solve bubkus
