STAY HOME – SAVE LIVES!!!!
Currently there are not any cases of Corona Virus in Warm Springs or Jefferson County. We have tested 6 individuals in Warm Springs with 4 of those tests returning as negative and 2 tests pending results. We will notify the community when those results come back
There has been a second confirmed case of the CoronaVirus in Wasco County in The Dalles area. For our community members that do their shopping in The Dalles, we ask that you exercise cautious judgment and be aware of the potential of this virus and that its only carrier is by human contact. If at all possible, please be mindful of the rest of the community and stay home.
The Tribal Council strongly encourages all community members to please stay home and only travel off the reservation to get essential supplies, such as groceries, medications, and health needs. Please refrain from having contact with others and maintain social distancing. Wash your hands, counters, tabletops and doorknobs. If you don’t have to go out, please stay home. Also be aware of Governor Brown’s Executive Order 20-12 that she issued on March 23, 2020.
