  1. Clearly covid 19 is here in Oregon, and my supposition is that there will be more cases.
    To the bleeding hearts who are concerned about tourists, and the ability of people to continue in the way we were living 4 weeks ago- Lincoln City has 1 hospital, 1 is less than 2 and the fewest of anything you can have, in case having only one hospital here with what is going to be a limited capacity makes you want to sympathize with people who only visit here from larger population centers. All bleeding hearts can pack up and head right to the valley, I’ll send you a map. The same goes for people with second homes here- either stay away, or self quarantine
    when you show up. Like that’ll happen. I’m seeing it across the street.
