BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners were briefed on the COVID-19 virus yesterday. Sheriff Shane Nelson told commissioners people here are taking the governor’s order to stay home, seriously. He says social distancing continues to be critically important. Health Services Director Doctor George Conway said hospital bed capacity in Bend and Redmond is adequate while I-C-U beds are constrained but adequate in Bend. However, Dr. Conway says one problem is the turnaround for virus testing which now ranges from 2-to-14 days. He also says new test kits are expected soon.
