Plenty of opposition being voiced to Governor Brown’s pandemic restrictions on business activity and social gatherings for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Massive rallies with a hundred protestors or more in Bend – others in Redmond, La Pine, and Madras – all voicing the “we will not comply” message.  Those taking part say they understand the risks surrounding Covid but contend they’re no different than the risks posed by the other seasonal illnesses we see every year, and they resent being told what to do with their own families for the holiday.  Meantime, Health officials in Deschutes County are begging residents to take every precaution they can, especially in light of the alarming jump in Covid cases and deaths reported over several days last week – more than a thousand new or suspected cases several days in a row, and the state’s Covid death toll now topping 800.
