Tribal employees and community members are encouraged to test routinely for COVID-19 using home test kits available at the Emergency Management office.  Test kits with printed expiration dates of June thru August have had their use dates extended for 6 months by the FDA and so are still good to use.  Because many COVID-19 cases have no or mild symptoms, testing weekly is one way to help prevent spreading the virus.
