“As we all prepare to share a Thanksgiving meal and reflect on this past year, it cannot be minimized that we have had a very difficult year. We have all been isolated from family and friends for extended periods of time and continue to be isolated as CoVID-19 cases continue to spread. I encourage you all to find the small things that bring great joy, including our spirituality, the shared laughs and collegial friendships that we can be thankful for and consider ourselves blessed.” Covid-19 Update

The Warm Springs Covid-19 Response Team strongly encourages you to keep practicing safe Covid-19 practices. Be safe on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Christmas, now is the time to practice safety practices.
