  1. I have been wondering why the case reports seem to under report cases on time in our community. I know for a fact that Vale Elementary School has 4 current staff cases as of 10/26/2020. The same is true when case reporting was delayed with Pioneer Place. Thank you, Phyllis Hemeon Sent from my iPhone


    • Phyllis, please call our nurse liaison to the schools. Her name is Danette and she can be reached at 541-889-7279. Schools and care facilities are required to report cases to the state. It could be that there is a delay in reporting to the state and then from the state to us. Thank you for reaching out.

  2. I’m an employee of Walmart. My department manager has covid and has been home for more than a week. I was not informed about this but found out Monday through the “grapevine”. I was off Tuesday and Wednesday for my regular days off but on returning today I asked if I was to quarantine out of an abundance of caution. Management said I could leave if I was uncomfortable but they had not been contacted by the health department. I haven’t any symptoms but was told it could take up to two weeks. Please tell me if this is standard for exposed people. Thank you

    • Please call us at 541-889-7279! We can investigate any positive cases for people who live in Malheur County. If the case lives in Idaho, we can still help, but will have to work through Southwest District Health in Idaho for more information. Thank you for reaching out!
