YOUR COVID QUESTIONS: Experts answer many questions from the community about the coronavirus

Amid confusion about the coronavirus and its impact on Malheur County, the Enterprise turned to experts to help sort out fact from fiction.

Readers submitted more than 100 questions to the Enterprise along a broad range of topics. We sorted them and then sent them on to a range of experts to answer. The Malheur County Health Department, the Oregon Health Authority, Gov. Kate Brown’s office, Saint Alphonsus Health System, St. Luke’s Health System, the Malheur County Sheriff’s Office, the Ontario Police Department and the Nyssa Police Department all participated by responding to the community’s questions.

The responses are presented as they were submitted except for editing for brevity.
