Sheriff Urges Outdoor Recreation Not Take Part In High Risk Activities

The Deschutes County Sheriff says there have been numerous instances of drivers getting stuck on snow-packed forest roads while hikers, snowshoers and snowmobilers have become lost. The sheriff says if someone needs help, the Search and Rescue volunteers may have to break social distancing requirements in order to make the rescue. Also the volunteers may have to be off the job if they end up in quarantine. The sheriff is asking people to not take part in high risk activities that could lead to the need to be rescued.  Also stay off snow packed forest roads as snow depths are sometimes hard to determine.
