CENTRAL OREGON -- The Mayors of Bend and Redmond were joined at Friday’s virtual news conference by Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone. Much of the discussion was focused on getting things reopened. DeBone says there are 7 state prerequisite guidelines that have to be followed but he’s optimistic about Deschutes county’s plan. Among the requirements…a drop in COVID-19 cases…hospital capacity to handle any surge and…enough personal protection equipment for health care workers. Bend Mayor Sally Russell says consumer confidence will also be an important factor during reopening. The state could allow re-openings this Friday.
