The Boil Water Notice still in effect for Warm Springs Agency area. For more information contact: The Branch of Public Utilities, Water & Wastewater division at (541) 553-3246 The conservation of water at this time is critical due to our water infrastructure situation, so please keep your watering of lawns to a minimum. As of July 7, 2020 no timelines of repairs are available.

If you are ordered by Health Professionals to quarantine or isolate yourself please follow instructions: Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others and Isolation separates people who are infected with the virus away from people who are not infected. The Virus is spread people to people so keeping away from other persons is key to stopping the spread of this deadly virus.

A Majority of Tribal council has ordered themselves to self-quarantine with some exceptions, using Oregon Health Authority guidelines: “Cases Do Not Have to Quarantine for 90 Days After Discontinuation of Isolation if a confirmed or presumptive case achieves discontinuation of isolation and is later exposed to another case, we do not recommend monitoring and quarantine if the exposure happened within 90 days of release from isolation for their original case. If they develop symptoms during this period, they should remain in isolation until they have been afebrile (not feverish) without the use of antipyretics (fever reducer medicines) and have improving cough, shortness of breath, or diarrhea for 72 hours.”
