Umatilla County Public Health Officials Hope Crowds Coming For Pendleton Round-up Won’t Increase COVID Cases

The rodeo and surrounding events are requiring people to wear masks, but anecdotal evidence suggests that compliance is low and enforcement minimal. We hear from Umatilla County Public Health Director Joseph Fiumara about hospital capacity, case numbers and the outlook for the next few weeks.
