PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook county has had a low virus rate count but that has changed…noticeably…in the last two weeks. Information Officer Vicky Ryan says the jump in virus cases is due to workplace environments and social gatherings, meaning community spread. She says it is still important to wear a mask, social distance and wash hands. Ryan says St Charles Prineville has had four caregivers test positive but there is no threat to the community. She says the four have been isolated and all their contacts have been monitored every day and the hospital is safe. Ryan says anyone with questions about the virus is urged to contact Crook County Health Department.
