Deschutes Commissioners Get COVID-19 Update From Public Health

BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners heard an update on the COVID-19 pandemic yesterday. Public Health Director Nahad Sadr-Azodi says virus cases in Deschutes county have doubled in the past two weeks. He says of 221 cases, 173 have recovered. He says this week is critical because it will show if what we did two to four weeks ago is affecting the number of virus cases. Sadr-Azodi told commissioners the month of May was an anomaly, as people 30 and younger were getting the virus. He says since that time, the virus has shifted back towards the older generations.
