The News-Review publish an article 4 hours ago indicating Douglas County had 10 more coronavirus cases and then the article was taken down about an hour ago. What's that all about?

I was wondering the same thing. It sometimes seems like the NR reports days of fewer cases more often than days with higher cases.

Mike

The News-Review has reported on EVERY day that had zero cases.

No matter what some say, this is a serious illness. I'm a little surprised that I don't know more people who have contracted it, but I have on friend who fought it for three weeks, and another friend who lost a parent to it.

People need to take cautions and be courteous. We noticed that the Roseburg WALMART seems to be the largest gatherer of people who either don't give a hoot or are trying to rebel against common sense. We have frankly decided to avoid WALMART until we can be vaccinated.

Needing to be in Medford yesterday, we took the opportunity to shop at a few Medford stores...Kohls, Target, Macy's and Trader Joe's -- they are all strictly enforcing the wearing of masks -- didn't see even one transparent face shield (which is the same as no mask). In one store, we overheard some comments leading us to believe that the Medford WALMART seems to be similar to ours up here: a store that cares little and allows non-compliance.

Just wear a mask -- do your part to NOT spread whatever you might have.

Mike

I personally know 2 people (all older) who have died from coronavirus and 7 other friends and family (all younger) who were diagnosed with the disease, 2 of which were hospitalized.

OregonHusker

I've noticed a new face shield that is smaller than a playing card. Absolutely ridiculous what we see here in Roseburg.
