The Warm Springs COVID-19 local response team recommended that the Tribal Workforce remain at 50% with essential workers continuing to report, with other worker schedules to be determined by GM’s and Directors through January 11, 2021.
They also suggested continuing the community wide travel restriction with exception to travel to stores, post office, doctor appointments or for other emergency purposes.
Additionally – Out of State travel is discouraged. If any Tribal employee is planning to travel out of state they need to notify their supervisor. If they have no symptoms they can report to work when they return but will be required to take a COVID-19 test within 4 days upon their return with documentation that they are negative.
Tribal Council approved these recommendations.
