  1. Are they testing in Lincoln County? Just curious since we have had only 1 positive case from a Lincoln County resident who I believe was tested in a different county.

  2. Please do a report on the readiness of the Samaritan Hospital in LC. How many beds, extra ICU beds, what have they done (perhaps use old hospital for exta beds?)… we need to know.

  3. Good luck on real info! city heads are repubs. You should receive your hospital answer probably 3-8 weeks after you need it! Ya know like the Trump admin.

  4. Headline also misleading and slanting fox news like! “Oregon reports 1 covid-19 death and 98 new cases” You have to open and read to get the accurate report of 12 deaths of covid-19 at time of the article and higher now. Why leave out the fact that it’s a NEW death. Maybe something like “Oregon reports 1 new covid-19 death and 98 new cases” or positives or something like that. Many people just read headlines fast as they scroll and then spread them like real news, and then it becomes propaganda! Some news organizations do this on purpose. Right wing news is notorious for this.

  5. Hey moonshiners reject- I can hook you up with my Aunt who thought
    she’d blame us for Fox news and the President, she needs a friend.
    We’ll have cases here most likely, the city was a little slow in closing short term lodging, I have bad news for people using Craig’s list to advertise their VRD, you’re being found out, and reported.
    We have one hospital here, I was diagnosed with emphysema there, and my father passed away there, I have no desire to see the ICU anytime soon. Right now, tourists and terrorists sound very similar to me, there are stay at home orders, so please try not to kill anyone because you’re bored or greedy. Support our local open establishments and just try and have some common sense, it is not business as usual.
