CENTRAL OREGON -- Unemployment rates continue to drop in Central Oregon. Regional Economist Damon Runberg says Deschutes county saw unemployment fall from 12-point-4-per cent in June to 10-point-8-per cent in July. Crook and Jefferson counties each had 13-point-3-per cent unemployment in June but in July, Crook fell to 11-point-7 and Jefferson dropped to 11-point-3. Runberg says the pace of recovery has slowed down. He also says there may be problems ahead for the education sector of the economy with schools and colleges looking to on line classes in the face of COVID.
