County Commissioners Receive COVID-19 Update From Public Health

BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners received an update on the virus from Public Health Director Nahad Sadr-Azodi. He was asked recently to find out how long it takes for COVID-19 victims to recover, which he says averages about two weeks. Sadr-Azodi says the number of hospitalizations has been dropping. He says  although more younger people are being infected their hospitalization rate is only 4-per cent. He says they are seeing more household and cluster cases among young people, and that is good news as it may mean less community spread. Sadr-Azodi urges everyone to wear masks outside of the home and social distance. He says doing so helps keep the county in Phase 2.
