Closed for overnight camping but keep the park open for day use but close the bathroom facilities for everyone. Sure, that makes a lot of sense. People are protesting the over-reach of government. People are protesting to open up their cities and states. Why is AZ and other states open for camping (AZ never closed) and Oregon is closed? Why have some states never locked down while others want to stay closed seemingly forever? What is the rational?

Our states, our nation, are real close to collapsing from the extended shutdown. How many millions of people are out of work? 20 million? 30 million? More? That's a lot of pain and suffering going on. Who is in favor of burning down the house to save it? We have some governors opening their states while some others are tightening the nooses. And the rational is? We need to open up this country and get people back to work.

This virus isn't the evil gennie it's been made out to be, There's a 98+% survival rate but some would have you believe it's the other way around. This lock was only meant to keep hospital beds available. Well the demand for hospital beds for covid was never there and the hospitals are on the verge of financial failure.

It's time to put it behind us and move on. Remember, we have Constitutional Rights that are being trampled. If you don't want to venture outside then don't but the rest of us should be allowed to exercise our Rights to go back to work, go to the beach or go camping.

"Safe" is the rational. Watch any YouTube video or read any article that quotes or contains speak from a politician, notably most state Governors whose affiliation is non withstanding, although there are noticeable differences in the philosophies if you can call it that between affiliations.

"We have to keep you safe", or "We have to keep the public safe", or "It's all about being safe", or "We are thinking of safety", or "We want to be safe".

Do you feel any safer than you felt 9 weeks ago? How do you like the new "safe" normal? Safe, safe, safe, sure glad we're all safe.

Strange things have/are happening in my opinion.

Close the rv camping in parks but leave the rest areas along interstates open.
Close the hospitals from taking care of the sick and injured but leave the pot shops open for business.

Now the latest crazieness heard today, we will reopen the resturants but people will have to wear a mask and tell who they are and where they live in case someone gets sick later. Really, I don't know what you can eat through a mask, maybe soup but I'm pretty sure you would get it in your ears trying to strain it through your mask.

Our county in Southern Oregon opened its parks to self contained RV's starting yesterday. No restrooms open, no sales of ice, firewood, etc. maintain social dis--- blady blady bla. Ninty space RV park, 4 RV's pretty easy to maintain all the requirements. We sure enjoyed getting the RV out for a couple of days and
not being able to listen to the 6 o'clock doom and gloom show.

Great camping and great weather, we all enjoyed the break.

Per the Reopen Oregon draft.

Customers don't need to wear masks while seated at their table.

It'a draft so it's not set in stone.

Yep another example of common sense. The virus can only get you between the door and the table, once seated you are perfectly safe so remove your mask and have a great time. [emoticon]

Let's just make restaurant's a thing of the past along with churches, retail stores you can enter, offices, all of it.

Everyone can just stay home cowering in fear, working from home. We can all wear hepa rated burlap sacks or surplus Russian gas masks 24/7. The government can supply your every desire. 3 meals on wheels delivered to your door daily by big brother. Everything else can be curbside pickup, or ordered online and delivered.

That's funny ... imagine eating with the mask on ... [emoticon] [emoticon]
New invention: a plastic mini-surgeon's mask on rotator buttons, flip it up, take a bite, flip it down. HAHAHaHa

And, yes, common sense is absent in lots of situations. One size never fits all.

Oregon, Washington, Idaho state parks are currently closed to camping. Rather than rail about it, go where state parks are open, like Montana.

I can understand keeping areas closed that are reporting infections. but for areas with no infections reported for two weeks or more. the local population should be allowed to use local facilities. I wouldn't open them for people coming from out of state or from areas with infections reported..
