Don’t Base Behavior On COVID Numbers

New and updated statistics about COVID-19 come out every day, but how should people respond to them?  Hood River County Health Department Health Officer Dr. Christopher Van Tilburg says it can be difficult for health professionals like himself to interpret them, so he understands how confusing it can be for the general population.  His recommendation is for people not to use the numbers to guide day to day behavior, but to consistently follow safe practices by wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and washing hands frequently.  Van Tilburg adds the numbers change even when there are no new cases because more is learned about cases already reported.
