Letters to the editor
There’s bad information out there
I have recently been in-
formed that there was a post
on Facebook that any worker
who tested positive for CV19
would have their children re-
moved by Children’s Services.
It is not true. If parents con-
tract CV19 and are unable to
care for their children, then
they can ask Children’s Ser-
vices for help, and the chil-
dren could be placed where
they will be provided for
while the parents recover. It
is up to the parents.
Also, I’ve heard a rumor
that if someone asks for a
CV19 test, the information
could be acquired by Immi-
gration and Customs Enforce-

If anyone feels the need to
be tested because they believe
they might have contracted
CV19, contact the Clatsop
County Health Department
about getting tested. The test
won’t determine if you’ve had
CV19 in the past; that’s a dif-

A few thoughts on wearing a
mask: It’s hard to breath and
wear a mask for very long; at
least I find it to be so. So I feel
for the workers at stores who
wear them for hours. Thank
you store workers!
Also, I can’t tell if people are
smiling or crabby when only
eyes peek out. One day, I told
a man in the store that I was
smiling under my mask. He
said he was, too.
We all do look strange walk-

hopefully, soon we can re-
