BEND - REDMOND OR -- The first virtual news conference led by the mayors of Bend and Redmond yesterday covered a wide range of COVID-19 questions. One question was “What if there’s a 2nd wave of Covid-19 cases after you reopen the economy?” Bend Mayor Sally Russell says she is concerned to have a reopening only to have to pull back. She says they must plan for the worst and hope for the best. Redmond Mayor George Endicott says they are trying to coordinate with the county and the state in the event of a Phase 2. There was general agreement that before the economy reopens the state must work to hire people to do the important contact tracing work of COVID-19 cases.
