The Lionshead fire is still burning with 28% containment and our air quality is good – AQI=15-20. Please use KN95 masks if you are in the smoke. Stay inside, close windows and avoid any strenuous activity outdoors.

The Warm Springs Covid-19 Response Team takes time to count our blessings: Clean air, drinkable water, fires being contained, another testing machine to help manage the disease in our community and that we are standing up to Covid-19 and doing what we have to do to live as our ancestors meant it to be.

Keep Masking up, social distancing, avoid gatherings of any size and not your household, avoid hot spots and be careful when near fire incidents. Monitor your own health, if you are sick, stay home and call “…the clinic” at 541-553-1196 or other number 553-5512 and tell nurse of you symptoms.
