Reply Reply 1 Dianne Price I don't understand what all the fuss is about!! It isn't any big deal to wear a mask!! Reply Reply 0 P Robbins The Governor has access to experts who study the virus and transmission, and makes her decisions based on their knowledge and advice. And I'm supposed to listen to a bartender? Reply Reply 0 C. Adrian Clark Jr. Sounds smart. Reply Reply 79% I don't agree with it! Add Comment Comment Share with friends I don't think we should need to wear masks outside if we're fully vaccinated. It doesn't make sense.

Post the link to recall Kate Brown please :) Reply Reply 5 Tyler West Isn't a little fresh air considered a cure for most conditions that affect the anxiety driven hysteria caused by much fear of illnesses around us all? Put a mask on mandates! Reply Reply 4 Never 2Lo Just left Salem hospital yesterday around 3:00pm. Er was a ghost town. Rooms absolutely were not at capacity. Nobody waiting for a bed, 5 nurses in dad's room cuz they had nobody else needing care! I've seen this first hand! Our Government is lying right to our face, and we are believing them! Reply Reply DeBacker Melis Not everyone 😉 3 Dustin Lanier The anti vaxers are the problem huh? But I thought the first shot and round of masks worked? Haha keep believing it sheep. Reply Reply 3 Mark Hamilton There is a large body of compelling evidence in the form of peer-reviewed studies and meta-analyses that masks are not effective and in fact dangerous to the wearer. https://swprs.org/face-masks-evidence/ Reply Reply C. Adrian Clark Jr. I don't know where you get this from but I would look a little deeper. Robert Northrup Stanford university study. https://wsau.com/2021/04/20/stanford-study-results-facemasks-are-ineffective-in-blocking-transmission-of-covid-and-actually-can-cause-health-deterioration-and-premature-death/ 3 Jeff Keller There is NO science to support it. It’s the kind of things banana republic dictators do. No one should observe it and you should demand that the governor provide the scientific justification. Reply Reply 2 william eldredge Because its a way of control. The CDC " the Center Dictatorship Control" seems to have all the answers but they don't. Masks don't ever stop this covid 19 disease let alone the delta variant. These Demon- Rat Liberal Socialist all want control n there up to No Good. Reply Reply 2 Rick Allen We will NOT comply, they are NOT needed outdoors and neither is Kate Brown!!! Recall signatures please!!! So to sum it up NO, NO and by the way NOOOOOO!!! Reply Reply 2 💛🖤 RAG 💛🖤 We need a VACCINE MANDATE for ALL eligible people!! Those who don't want the FREE vaccine and get Covid should NOT take up hospital beds and get treated at home at THEIR expense!!! Reply Reply Gabe West No we don't I know several people that have had strokes from this vaccine Chris Murders Keep believing the tv! Kelly Keosky I think this type of tyranny was tried somewhere before, and it didn't work out so well. Where was that??? Oh yeah.... GERMANY Robert Northrup 21 people on a cruise ship acquired COVID 1 died. They were all vaccinated. Vaccinated people can be infected by another person who has been vaccinated. 1 Jacob Wilton Common sense can and should be allowed to take precedence. The longer we do this, the longer it takes to achieve herd immunity. Florida is literally 2 to 3 weeks away from achieving herd immunity. We have no date in this state... Reply Reply Greg Moore You nail it. Been saying this for well over a year. 1 Robert Northrup This virus will continue to mutate and it will kill you eventually or it won't vaccinated or not. Will we be arrested like they are in Australia? People can't even leave their homes without an approved reason. How deeply will you bow to the supreme leader? Reply Reply 1 Chris Murders Kate brown is a brown shirt for Soros.... Reply Reply 1 Teresa Rodriguez Each person's safety and well being is up to them to maintain. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, wear one, if not, dont!! For those that are worried, the masks should keep particles out of your face just as much as keeping your particles publuc. Reply Reply 1 Chet Singleton Once again I feel our governor is basing her decisions on her location in the metro areas. Reply Reply 1 Gabe West End the mask mandate its not good for you it has been link to pnomonia Reply Reply C. Adrian Clark Jr. Some patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have had pneumonia but not attributed to mask use. 0 Judy Ostrom-Dixon I am done caring about stupid people! Reply Reply 0 Tim Collins Hell lets all just stay in our homes FOREVER! Reply Reply 0 Christena I will wear a mask to show respect to the buisnesses I frequent because I don't want them getting fined. That's the extent of my mask wearing. If I need a mask for something I would just stay home. Reply Reply 0 Kim Martin Again with- OUR BODY, OUR CHOICE. If you feel that unsafe, stay home. Seriously, life is too short to worry about somebody else wearing a mask. Reply Reply 0 JohnWayne Kenneth Pool Screw these masks and this emergency. Reply Reply 0 Greg Moore It is insane. For those who claim "it isn't any big deal to wear a mask", you are a liar. NO ONE wants to wear these because they make you sweat, you lose out on expression, it restricts your breathing, and it is little more than a political statement outside.... no proof of effectiveness at all. Reply Reply 0 Kelly Keosky I can't say NO loud enough. Let the anti vaxers mask up Reply Reply 0 Sheryl Nash-Dixon Unless they are N95 masks, they are not doing a thing. Cloth masks are porous to something as tiny as a virus Reply Reply 0 Kenneth Emmrich The selfish and ignorant people who have not gotten their shots are causing grief for everyone else. This a thinning of the herd, survival of the fittest, the strong will survive. Reply Reply Greg Moore Thinning the herd at 0.01% mortality for healthy people? Yeah, good try.
