Though I am fully vaccinated, I still need to protect against a breakthrough infection from the Delta variant. In which case, I would not be sick, but would still be infectious and capable of infecting someone who is immunocompromised,--or unvaccinated. Let's fight the virus, not each other.

You can still get it if vaccinated, and the mask has been linked to pnomonia

Only when there are children present and cannot distance until the vaccines have been approved for children under 12. If parents do not wish to vaccinate their children I do hope they have taught them healthy habits and Universal precautions.

Try to stop the spread to others. It doesn't matter if you care or not.

Mask have not proven effective at stoping covid. They cause headaches, acne, breathing issues and other issues. I am tired of small businesses being shut down while places like Walmart and Amazon have profited from the pandemic. I am tired of being lied to. No more mandates or mask or closures!

Masks are garbage against a virus. Cross contamination is not a conspiracy theory.

We have known since last year children are of effectively zero risk. They are also not effective at spreading the virus. Plenty of examples of schools without masks not increasing general rates of community spread. None are providing statistics/scientific studies supporting mask demands for kids.

Let's get EVERYBODY vaccinated is THE SOLUTION!!! I'm fine if you don't want to BUT stay home when you get Covid and don't take up space in the hospital.

I did what I was supposed to do. Im fully vaccinated as is my immediate family.. I'm not going to try and protect other folks who refuse to have personal accountability. I am worried about the kids though. They have no alternative. They need to mask up for safety.

The real choice: Vaccinate or Die? If you are a Patriot/Revolutionary, you are vaccinated. If you're NOT, I believe that person's Health Insurance premiums should increase to $10,000 per month and disqualify the Individual from Subsidized Health Care. No more enabling "Stupid".

This reflects the failure of Oregon's education system. Is it more focused toward social issues than reading, writing and arithmetic?

OF COURSE IT IS. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR KIDS ANYMORE. IT IS ALL ABOUT STAYING IN CONTROL OF EVERYONE. THE LESS A PERSON KNOWS, THE EASIER TO CONTROL.

Homeless camps should not be set up in the city, especially not in residential or commercial areas, There should be county or BLM land available on the outskirts of the city, if you drive along China Hat road there are already a lot of homeless people camping out on BLM land.

No not BLM land either. We used to go out there for fun, now we don’t cause it’s too scary.

It's insane to expect Bend city property to fill up with trash as it is bound to do with homelessness. We need to be responsible to our citizens and keep Bend from degrading into cities like Salem and Portland!

I drive by Hunnel Road everyday on my work. I have seen everything from drugged out, to drug deals to pants on the ground. It's not safe for anyone with the growing pile of refuse and abandon derelict vehicles. There have been efforts to relocate and help , yet the people living seem to want that.

It is not helping anyone by letting then live on the streets and in the conditions that I personally see on a daily basis. Quit letting people build million dollar homes and put in some housing that will give these people a place to live and give them a hand up, not a hand out!

Bend has a large service type of employment. For a lot of these people, low cost housing near places they work barely exist. Add to that the many who are homeless because of wildfires, it will get worse. Time for the state, county, city to create housing. People need a place to live with dignity
