BEND, OR -- A roundtable discussion Monday evening was led by State Representative Cheri Helt regarding the COVID-19 virus. Helt says information about the spread of the virus needs to be accurate and up to date. At the same time she says each person also needs to know the precautions to take in the face of the virus to prevent it from spreading. Helt says lawmakers in Salem are getting daily updates from the Oregon Health Authority about COVID-19. She says it is critically important to make sure information gets to the public at the state and local levels quickly while making sure it is not misinformation.
