COVID-19 Community Update
April 14, 2020 – As of 4:30 p.m.

Currently there are zero cases of Corona Virus in Warm Springs. We have tested 22 individuals in Warm Springs with 17 of those tests returning as negative and 5 test pending results. We will notify the community when those results come back.

Social Distancing is staying at least 6 feet away from each other, not gathering in groups, staying out of crowded places and mass gatherings. Keeping space between you and others is one of the best tools we have to avoid being exposed to this virus and slowing the spread. So far, we are fortunate not to have any cases here. Let’s all be diligent in Social Distancing to ensure that we do our best to keep this virus out of our community! By staying home today, we will have each other longer to share good times and gatherings in the future.
