KWSO Calendar for Tue., Jan. 12, 2021

Warm Springs Tribal Council is in session today.  On their agenda: reports from the Museum at Warm Springs and High Lookee Lodge.  An update on the Kah-Nee-Ta Hamlets, and reports from the Culture & Heritage Committee – Fish and Wildlife (On Reservation) and the Education Committee.

Yesterday, Tribal Council accepted the local COVID-19 response team’s recommendation to bring back 100% of the Tribal Workforce effective tomorrow, January 12th.  Data will continue to be reviewed with updates given to Tribal Council weekly.  All COVID-19 precautions will remain in place including temperature checks before entering Tribal Buildings, the wearing of face masks and social distancing of at least 6 feet from others.  Tribal employees are discouraged from traveling out of state but if you must – you need to inform your General Manager.  Upon return a COVID-19 test will need to be taken.

COVID-19 Vaccine is now available at the Warm Springs Health & Wellness Center.  It will take many months to get everyone vaccinated so it is critical that everyone continue to take measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Wearing a face mask or covering
  • Maintain 6 feet of social distance from others
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer
  • Disinfect frequently touched hard surfaces
  • And Stay home as much as possible
