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.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
