Tribal Council (by conference call) accepted recommendation from the Warm Springs Covid-19. Response to open up our tribal government services at 50 percent. This is contingent upon the Covid- 19 spread in our community. Official notice of tribal government opening coming soon. Three Council members were not in attendance.

Any number in a gathering increases the chance of spread of Covid-19. Please continue use of masks, social distancing (not closer to a person not of your household than 6 feet); avoid hot spots, wash hands often, and do this through out the day.

STAY HOME, STAY SAFE
