PUBLIC HEALTH & COVID-19
As Chair of the County Commission in 2020, Heather Buch led Lane County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is committed to ensuring vaccine access for all, and she helped set up free vaccination sites all across the county’s rural areas and small towns. In addition, she supported the creation of a rural health clinic in Cottage Grove to provide dental health training in that community, through a partnership with Lane Community College.
As a County Commissioner, Heather is also a member of the Lane County Board of Public Health. In that role, she continues to track the spread of the virus and communicate continuously with her constituents about current safety measures and the location of testing and vaccination sites in our area.
