Masking and vaccinating should have been voluntary the whole time.

I don't wear one now, so yes, I'll be comfortable not wearing one in April.

Only a complete neurotic, unscientific fool would have a problem going maskless... unless you are immune-compromised. Read the science... knowledge is your friend. Omicron is truly nothing more than the flu... it sets in your nose/throat, not your lungs.

I'm comfortable now not wearing one, why would I not be comfortable then?

masks should have never ever been mandated. We have reputable large studies showing "asymptomatic spread" is false and we have countless studies showing masks don't work and never did. In every major city if you look at the case/death graph they all go up dramatically AFTER mask mandates

I don't wear a mask now. If a place tries to enforce it I don't go in there. It's discrimination and unscientific. 99% of places I go anymore don't enforce, but every once in awhile there will be one place that does, looking at you goodwill (they chase you down).

If businesses want customers to wear masks, that is their right. If you won't wear a mask and refuse to enter, that is your right.

I have been vaxed and boosted - even tho the efficacy of boosters reportedly wains after 4 mos - but since the virus is now endemic, we can't live lives forever masked. I will feel comfortable going into a restaurant sans mask. Already have done so... doing fine so far.

As per my Doctors orders I was not supposed to be wearing a mask period! So I will actually be comfortable again. But Im sure this wont last. Just like all the other times she lifted the mask mandate. She's just toying with us,

I'll be pretty comfortable without a mask since I'm current on the shots. That's assuming we don't get a spike in some new nasty variant.

Several months ago, CDC confirmed cloth masks have little effect on controlling COVID, yet our President and Governor have ignored the science. The Johns Hopkins University Study proved lockdowns were a mistake. Make masking voluntary now! Those concerned should wear an N95 mask. Let's move on.

April?? Seriously? I have been comfortable NOT wearing a mask this whole time! I live by faith NOT fear. Wearing a mask harms your immune system over time, ( yes that is from DR's not misinformation!) we need to move on! I was NEVER even remotely comfortable wearing a mask, this question is backward

Well, you would have to lock yourself in your house and never come out, as Omicron gets right through your mask, even if surrounded by morons who have had 5 boosters and triple masked

Covid will never come to an end until everyone gets their shots. There are just so many people that refuse to do that, that I think it will always be a problem. Some people should start thinking about the safety of others, not just what they think about themselves.

I know 4 unvaccinated people that acquired COVID from vaccinated people. 123,740 fully vaccinated people in Oregon have contracted COVID and 783 fully vaccinated people have died. Don't blame people that didn't get vaccinated. I am sorry you are so frightened.

People are drying from the vaccine.and masks don't work

At my sister's work place 5 people got vaccinated and two did not (medical reasons. Allergic to the ingredients). As of now, the vaccinated people have had COVID twice and the two that were not vaccinated have not gotten sick yet. One of them being my sister. Interesting.

Newsflash, it will never end. The shots are not stopping it, if you have not been following the news.

I dont have a problem with people wearing masks. Like Fauci said back in 2020....if it makes you feel comfortable by all means do it. I will not diss people that still want to wear a mask. Thats their business. As for me I will be happy to be following my Doctor's orders and go back to NOT wearing.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

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.
