The community of Warm Springs celebrated Mother’s day in a new way. I am sure the Mom’s made sure all were safe. Please continue wearing masks, social distancing, avoiding crowds, washing hands often because that what your Mom would want you to do.

Levity aside, “The Public Health Nursing (PHN) team continue to work with our community members who have tested positive. There have been no reported hospitalizations and the patients remain in quarantine until released by the healthcare team. The PHN team continues to call and follow up with both positive cases as well as those who have tested negative to ensure patients are receiving appropriate and adequate follow-up care and monitoring of their symptoms.” Hyllis Dauphinais, CoVID-19 Brief & Update.

Tribal members, Warm Springs community and neighbors, it is a serious disease, no one is immune—surrounding communities are loosening up their safety guidelines while CTWS continues to have the health and lives of our people as the priority.
