In early March, when COVID-19 seemed a distant threat, few in Central Oregon could predict the impact of the deadly, highly contagious virus.

Here, through an evolving collection of photographs taken by Bulletin staffers, is a look at how the crisis unfolded in Bend. Please note that each photo caption includes a link to the Bulletin story that was published when the photo first appeared.
