Oregon Constitution grants impartiality among all businesses. You either close ALL of them or you open ALL of them

To save the economy ...small businesses can't last much longer if they remain closed.

Many businesses are suffering. Many people are loosing their life accomplishments and savings. Children are suffering mentally and physically. Government should not be acting in a parental role making things mandatory, enough is enough.

COVID numbers are not correlated to indoor dining, this is causing an unnecessary hardship for businesses who follow social distancing protocols.

YES!! With an adjusted occupancy rate ALL businesses including gyms and sport facilities such as tennis, pickleball... as long as it isn't a contact sport should be able to OPEN UP!! The spread is coming for family gatherings and the under 30 crowd being irresponsible!!

Why not? Trump is gone. No reason now to destroy our economy. It is to late however too much damage has been done to recover. I anticipate a downward spiral into a black hole because democrats don't want a thriving economy.

It's only hurting our economy to remain closed. I've continued to work throughout this shutdown but many businesses have closed their doors for good. What has being closed really accomplished? Nothing because we were closed and the numbers still climbed. If people are afraid then stay home!

Yes obviously, and most definitely, the business shut downs are hurting more people than the virus. Big stores are open, why destroy the small business especially the restaurants! Less than 1.4 % has come from restaurants. This is from Democrat's that love control ! We must bet Brown out of office

We need to trust the science. The federal government needs to develop a comprehensive program to defeat the pandemic which would include assistance to restaurants and gyms, since the states don't have the money to aid these important businesses.

Covid can spread too easily in restaurants and gyms. With the new mutations of the virus being way more contagious, we can't take chances. Way more people can catch the new variant, have no symptoms, but be very contagious.

It’s not the prices of fuel, it’s the bozo in the White House causing all of the chaos facing our nation. I wish our media outlets actually covered the real news instead boosting this post turtle even further. Nobody knows how the turtle got on the post but somebody put him there. We’re all F$&ked.

Very experienced mentor left their jobs in the fire service and nursing. They already had natural immunity, which made the vaccine pointless.

Glad my son in law decided to get vaccinated. I dont want to be around unvaccinated "health care" workers. Neither do I want to be around unvaccinated police and fire who I pay to serve and "protect". Glad, too, that teachers and staff are required to be vaccinated.

No I don't, however, I don't believe anyone should need a mandate to do the right thing. Through the years Americans have come together when needed to bring the country through events like this. Those that continue to cause deaths, shorthanded medical services and tumbling stock market for what?

I do not know anyone personally affected, but in a way we are all affected! I am vaccinated and I think it is the best way to get the horrible Democrats socialist control freaks off our backs, but it is NOT the American way to be forced into something! We have got to get rid of the Biden and Brown!

I voted(?) this way because ... I don't know anyone affected by the mandate. But I don't understand people's resistance to this. Consider mandates we all accept without complaint: stop signs, seat belts, motorcycle helmets. Come on, people. Get the shot, Keep yourself and the rest of us healthy.

I know several people that have had strokes and other serious side effects from this vaccine, people get the jab before researching it
