Southern Oregon Doctor On When Restrictions Might Lift


We may not like it, but now we're used to daily life changing, as we try to avoid huge numbers of people getting sick from the new coronavirus. 

Getting started was one thing; now how does the lockdown end?  President Trump and other political figures have been chafing at the damage to the economy, but health workers warn of a higher disease and death toll if social distancing ends prematurely. 

Dr. Ralph Eccles is an endocrinologist and former administrator at Oregon Health & Science University.  He has some thoughts on the signs that we can begin to return to normal life, and he shares those here.
