PRINEVILLE, OR -- KBND reported yesterday that Crook County Schools had asked for a waiver from state metrics because of a spike in virus cases. Spokesman Jason Carr says however, schools will remain open. He says the governor’s Healthy Schools Reopening Council has been looking at ways to get schools across the state re-opened. He says while the state did not answer the waiver request yes or no, the council believes the metrics need to be adjusted. As a result, Carr says schools can remain open.
