  1. Pacific Seafood should be fined heavily for this. Now, LC does not qualify for Phase 2 reopening, and children will again be home-schooled. This is about responsibility, not profits. Now LC must fear going into its own hospital. Why didn’t they stay at Newport hospital and confine it there? Also, we both have June jury duty in Newport, starting Thursday. Think we should report? I expect this to be postponed without retribution. Beaches, hotels and restaurants opened too soon…and now we see the repercussions. Contact Kate Brown and ask her to close the coastal cities again. This is unacceptable.

  2. Totally agree Annie, I’m thinking we should blockade hwy 101 at both ends of town and then set our hair on fire.

  3. Thank you, Lincoln City Homepage, for following up on this so well. Someone needs to do a larger piece about how badly food processing companies are treating their workers. This example is pretty outrageous. Pacific Seafoods needs to be publicly shamed.
