BEND, OR -- Oregon State University has announced the results of two days of sampling for COVID-19 in Bend last month. O-S-U officials say door to door sampling by their research teams suggests 1-person in 1-thousand in Bend had the virus that causes COVID-19. Health Services Director Doctor George Conway told county commissioners the teams were in Bend May 30th and 31st;    went to 30 neighborhoods and tested 615 people in 342 households. Conway says OSU researchers also took sewage samples in those neighborhoods and their analysis is expected "soon." OSU officials say they hope to schedule a second round of sampling in Bend.
