KWSO Calendar for Tue., Oct. 12, 2022

Please take COVID-19 precautions by wearing a face mask and maintaining 6 feet distance from others.  This can feel awkward when you interact with family and friends that don’t live with you or who you haven’t see in a while but it’s so important to still follow the protocols to protect everyone we care about.  Facemasks are required in Warm Springs in all public places.

In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is also now flu season.   You can avoid getting the flu bug by being vaccinated.  Warm Springs IHS is offering flu shots on weekday mornings (except Wednesdays) 8:30 to 11:30 and afternoons 1:30-3:30.
