REDMOND, OR -- OSU’s TRACE team has released findings from their Covid sampling in Redmond. The data from a random test of 30 neighborhoods and 376 residents indicates that 32 people in 1-thousand within the community have—or did have—the virus at the end of January. TRACE project leader Ben Dalziel (Dee-ELL) says that’s on the high side compared to other test cities but not unexpected. He says more importantly this testing shows true infection rates which inform communities of their overall Covid health. During a canvas of 30 Redmond neighborhoods at the end of January 38-per cent of residents contacted agreed to be tested.
