I will follow the instructions of the business owners on this policy. Their business, their property, their decision.

Those who work in these businesses come in contact with many people. They should be protected as much as possible, and we have to stop this virus from disrupting our lives in future years.

I'll wear the mask, never was too impressed with the honor system of vaccination. When they have vaccination passports I'll have a little faith if they are required at the door. Now I feel a mask is more important, don't trust the honor system.

Until our infection rate is under control (68 in Deschutes Co. today), I support businesses requiring masks inside. More infections means more variants--something we do not need. GET VACCINATED. It's Science, not Politics.

Everyone was quick to enforce the state mandate. They should be just as quick to support the dropping of the mandate.

So we are going to just start violating people's personal and confidential medical information because a tyrant wants to control our lives? Go to hell brownstain, will not be getting injected and if asked will politely tell the person to effff off!

#1. Nobody has the right to ask about ones health or any health issues. And no one has the responsibility to share that information with store employees. #2. If the 65% of people who responded " not ok" to this poll would stop shopping at these businesses, they would rethink their decision.

ADA and HIPPA laws prevent them from requiring anyone from relinquishing their private medical data. And it is unlawful to require us to do so.

It is not all the businesses fault. They are being pressured by OSHA and idiots that have been traumatized by KTVZ and CNN.that are living in fear of dying from COVID.

I plan on not stopping at places any longer if they are going to ask me for my Vaccination status. I'm fine if a store wants to just keep the mask mandate in order to avoid issues with adding this INAPPROPRIATE question about the vaccine, but if they ask me for it, I'm just going to leave.

Mask are unhealthy. My family has a hard time breathing in them. Nobody has the right to know my personal info.. We have the right to make our own choices and not be punshed for it. It's time to stop with all covid orders Brown.

Brown needs to stop with the back and forth on risk levels. It is making it harder on bussinesses. Stop osha from fining them. which was unfair and uncalled for in the 1st place. She's hurting bussinesses and people of oregon. Forgive the osha fines on businesses! Let us all live our free rights!

The CDC claims that masks did little to fight the spread but still recommended wearing the masks even though they don't work. Now they say we can stop wearing them and no one listens to them. We are permitted to stop wearing them is fully vaxed. I won't wear one.

It is no ones business. Some people are not able to get the vaccine for medical or allergy reasons and are not going to be punished for it. Plus, you can still get covid with the vaccine!

Its also not OK for them to ask for my medical information. Last I heard HIPAA was still in place.

HIPAA replied & said when it's not a medical setting, your info can be requested, A Michigan lawyer asked their offices...sorry Charlie...

Per the CDC site, under the Public Health Law sec., it explains the HIPAA Privacy Rule. "The Privacy Rule also contains standards for individuals’ rights to understand and control how their health information is used." I control how my health info is used, I, & many other people will go elsewhere.

It's nonsense and it's a violation of US Code title 18 section 242 deprivation of rights. Masks are a false sense of protection while covid has a 99.998% survival rate. There's no emergency never has been and this is just to control the population.

I think if you are concerned or fearful about Covid, vaccinated or not, those are the people who should continue to wear masks, not everyone else. Most of the concerned and fearful people are the ones who have started, they will still be wearing masks, that's duplicating mask wearing.

Queen Brown used OSHA as a club to force businesses and their customers to wear masks. OSHA levied hefty fines and the threat of closures. Also there are the "Karens" running around taking pictures of people not wearing masks to turn them into the Gestapo.

Follow CDC guidelines regardless of the "personal interpretation of those CDC guidelines" by Governor Brown or that of any owner/CEO of a business or company.

We have enjoyed 3 concerts this yr. Since the remodel the acoustics are way better! I can see how the home owners can be bothered by the noise. They should have priority. The venue should be out in Terrebonne & w/better access to parking we think. It’s a big venue that keeps expanding & more people.

I live a mile away. I hear every concert from all the hardcore rock shows to the screaming over a country artist. As long as it ends by 10 (and it always does!) then I am happy. I attended multiple shows this year and each one got better and better. Keep the electronic shows coming!

We live in Tillicum Village, at least 2 miles away from the amphitheater. This summer the concerts have literally shook our windows at times. We are music lovers and don’t mind the concerts, but this has been terrible. We think it must be the new stage because it’s never been this way in the past.

The concerts are great while you're there. However, I'm almost 4 miles away and can feel the bass in my house during most of the concerts. It's extremely frustrating when it's not peaceful inside your own home. I believe that a good compromise can be reached and hope that happens for next year.

I live near Kiwanis Park, and the noise from the amphitheater has been excessive all summer long, especially the last 3 or so concerts. It's never been this loud in years prior. The noise from the closer to me Vince Genna stadium isn't even that loud or obnoxious.
