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
