BEND, OR -- Deschutes County’s Main Health Services Building will remain closed through at least Friday. The facility on Northeast Courtney in Bend closed last week after officials received inconsistent readings from newly installed carbon monoxide detectors. 


They say air quality testing continues. Initial tests showed what they call “very low carbon monoxide levels in limited areas of the building.” Over the next several days, they’ll monitor additional measures taken to stabilize air quality and finalize plans for permanent replacement of the building’s heating system. 


Appointments at the main county health building continue to be rescheduled or relocated. The closure only affects the NE Courtney Drive location. The same building was closed a month ago after employees reported strong natural gas odors.
