KWSO Calendar for Sun., Aug.9, 2020

Tribal Government Offices are closed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.  Tribal Council decided to postpone the reopening of offices until Monday August 17th.

Symptoms for COVID-19 can include: Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, Chills, Muscle pain, Headache, Sore throat, loss of taste or smell.

  • If you have Covid-19, you should isolate, whether or not you have symptoms.
  • Isolation separates people who are infected with virus from others, even in their home.
  •  If you might have been exposed to COVID-19, you should stay home.
  • This is called quarantine. Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others.

 To protect from spreading the COVID-19 virus:

  • wash your hands frequently
  • cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • wear a face mask or covering anytime you are in public
  • practice social distancing by staying home
  • stay at least six feet away from people not from your household
  • keep kids home
  • go out only for essentials like groceries, medical care, or work
  • do not gather in groups of people from outside your housefold
  • connect with family and friends you haven’t seen on the phone or online
