COIVD-19 Update

The Oregon Health Authority reports 292 new confirmed and presumptive cases of Covid-19 in the state with 6 in Deschutes County and 3 in Jefferson County. The OHA reports no new deaths in the state on Sunday, with the death toll sitting at 2,208. The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 134 with 26 patients in ICU beds. Sunday marked the one year anniversary of the first case of Covid-19 in the state. 


OHA plans

Governor Kate Brown is announcing the next group eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.  She says starting March 29th, Group 1B will include adults ages 45 to 64 with underlying conditions, along with some frontline workers, such as those in the seafood industry, agriculture and food processing. Low income and homeless people are also included in that group. On May 1st, the rest of the frontline workers along with media, transportation and postal service employees can get vaccines. Starting June 1st the vaccine will be available to the general public.


Johnson & Johnson vaccine approved

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine is a new addition to the current vaccine arsenal in the U-S. Dr. Cynthia Maree, Infectious Disease Specialist at Saint Charles Health System spoke last week during a Bend Chamber webinar. Maree said the J & J vaccine is one-dose and can be mass produced and stored more easily than the familiar Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. She says efficacy of the J & J and UK Astra Zeneca vaccines range from 62 to 77 percent…and are very good at preventing serious disease.
 


Vaccines: Not nearly Enough

The Oregon Health Authority has allocated 2,340 first-dose vaccines to Deschutes County for this week. Beginning today  people 65 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine…that’s about 40-thousand Deschutes County residents.  The county’s Health services Director, Dr. George Conway, says unfortunately, due to limited vaccine supply, it may be several weeks before all eligible people will able to schedule their vaccination.


Limited Re-opening of City Offices

Starting today, the City of Bend will begin a limited re-opening of some of its public facilities for in-person services. In a recent release the city says parts of City Hall will be open for public inquiries, like permitting. There will be in-person service for utility customers, Bend Police Department and the Municipal Court lobby, with modifications for safety. Masks and distancing are required. Public meetings will continue to be held virtually. For more information, visit bendoregon-dot-gov.
