A Unified Command website to better respond to COVID-19 has been established for Sherman, Gilliam and Wasco counties.
The Unified Command streamlines contact between the North Central Public Health District, county health departments, sheriffs offices, emergency managers, first responders, and local government officials.
The Unified Command also brings a Joint Information Center, which will share information and guidance with area residents who call the COVID-19 Hotline at (541) 464-6550. The Joint Information Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., seven days a week.
The Times-Journal will keep you informed as the situation develops.
