BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners heard an update on COVID-19 testing yesterday.  Doctor Jeannie Young gave an example of a boss who tested positive for the virus last week and then 5 of the workers asked to be tested. All 5 tested negative but this week 2 have become sick and all five will have to be re-tested.  Young says the county should have told the business to shut down for two weeks.She also told the board the positive rate of COVID-19 tests is 6-per cent in Deschutes county but for the LatinX community the positive rate is 11-per cent.
