BEND, OR -- The weekly COVID-19 briefing by public health to county commissioners yesterday included discussion about getting kids back in school. Health Director Doctor George Conway says there is a serious shortage of testing materials especially on-site rapid testing and delays of up to 10 days for results. Conway says access to testing is a real concern because in the fall we may see a second wave of virus and at the same time influenza overlapping with the virus. Conway told commissioners getting the contagion down is necessary to get schools reopened.
