St. Charles Health is instituting a “no visitor” policy for Covid-19 patients. Public Information Officer Lisa Godman says there will be some exceptions – including patients with a disability needing assistance and patients close to the end of their life. Hospital administrators say it’s a step they had to take to ensure the safety of their patients, and those who care for them. Meantime, two health administrators in Central Oregon have just been appointed to the OHA’s Vaccine Advisory Committee. Dr. George Conway with Deschutes County Health Services and Muriel DeLaVergne-Brown with the Crook County Health Department will now help to advise the Oregon Health Authority on distribution plans for the Covid vaccine throughout the state, along with the committee’s 25 other members.
