BEND, OR -- A Bend Pediatrician has written a letter to the governor about the effort to reopen schools. Doctor Rebecca Hicks wrote the letter that was signed by 150 other doctors. She says they agree with the metrics for reopening schools which requires low community transmission rates of COVID-19.  Hicks says they have called for more testing…. more contract tracing and…an aggressive public outreach campaign.  The letter calls for short term closures of two weeks or so, of indoor bars, restaurants, gyms and social gatherings to slow transmission rates. Hicks says people in their 20’s are spreading the virus but scaring them won’t work. She says young people need to know we cannot beat the virus without them
