It would be great if a higher number of county adults would choose vaccination over ______; I don't know what that word would be -- maybe a different word for each anti-vaxer.

I feel good that I've protected myself best I can -- I've reached the point where I don't care if a stubborn anti-vaxer gets sick and dies. Time to do away with most of the restriction for the general public and let the business doors open again.


Today's (Monday) report from Oregon Health Authority.

Multnomah County (2019 population 812,855) had 34 new cases

Washington County (2019 population 601,599) had 40 new cases

Douglas County (2019 population 110,980) had 18 new cases

You do the math, but the conclusion should be obvious. The word "stupidity" comes to mind.




According to yesterday’s Oregon Health Authority School Metrics report (below link), Douglas County is one of only five Oregon counties with a case rate over 200. The other counties are Crook, Gilliam, Grant and Harney.

Douglas County had 235 new coronavirus cases over the past two weeks which is almost twice as many as the 133 COMBINED cases reported by those other four counties.


The state’s coronavirus eviction moratorium, which has been in place since early in the pandemic, is set to expire at the end of this month.


Six cases of COVID-19 variant linked to India, now in Oregon.


Oregon's COVID-19 vaccine lottery making little if any impact.


In the KGW report, Dave Baden's statistics seem a little hinky. Vaccination reports from Gilliam County went from 616 to 661 and Sherman County went from 716 to 761. What are the odds of that (I'm not going to venture because we both know I don't math). Makes one wonder how many other counties Baden's tracking that have changed from a 16 to 61 number. The bottom line is those who choose to not vaccinate the more will die based on lies.


All 7 of Oregon's public universities to require COVID vaccinations this fall.
