BEND, OR -- The Executive Director of Summit Medical Group, Justin Sivill, had good news for commissioners about COVID-19….positive tests are slowing down. He says they’ve conducted 350 tests with 12 positive and 18 pending. Sivill says they have had only one positive test for the virus in the last 2 weeks. He warned however that a large percentage of the Central Oregon population on Medicare face multiple chronic health issues…including heart and lung disease. Sivill says treatments were stopped after being classified non-essential. He said getting treatment for these patients is becoming a critical need.
