HR County COVID-19 Increase Slows

Hood River County’s increase in COVID-19 cases since an outbreak in late May seems to be diminishing.  County Health Department Health Officer Dr. Christopher Van Tilburg says many of the 89 cases that have been reported since the pandemic have recovered, and more will reach that point soon.  He estimated about 70 cases are listed in the County, and more will reach that point this week.  Van Tilburg says recreational social gatherings continue to be the main source of cases in the County, .and that face coverings that are now required in indoor public settings in the County help reduce transmission rates.  He also encourages people to continue to wash their hands, stay home when sick, and employ physical distancing.
