Unemployment Numbers Show Little COVID-19 Impact, April Expected To Show Jump

BEND, OR -- The March unemployment numbers sound like a bad joke. Deschutes county with 3-point-4-per cent…Crook county with 4-point-9-per cent and Jefferson county at 4-point-4-per cent. Economist Damon Runberg says the numbers are so low because the March report reflects what was happening as of March 12th. He says the following week, the governor issued the Stay-At-Home order and unemployment has jumped since then.  Runberg says the April report will show how much the unemployment picture has really changed.
