BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners got an update on some COVID-19 related medical issues yesterday. The head of Summit Medical Group, Justin Sivill, says with elective surgeries now allowed, they have established pre-operation screenings at Cascade and Bend Surgery Centers. He says they have also expanded rapid testing for the virus but the big challenge is the lack of supplies. State guidelines for Deschutes county call for more than 600 tests a week to reopen the county. Sivill told commissioners once they’re up and running with the rapid test they could provide 300-to-400 tests a week.
