The Lionshead fire is at 46 % contained and is impacting air quality—air quality this morning is Moderate – AQI = 57-82.

The Oregon Health Authority reported this week that they recorded the single day largest increase in CoVID-19 positive cases. The trend across the State is not good. We have been holding steady and need to keep on this CoVID-19 safety practices. Masking up, social distancing, limiting our gatherings to immediate family only and controlling who visits your household.

A fun holiday like Halloween still has to practice safe CoVID-19 measures. This dangerous disease is transmitted person to person.

Reminder: Flu shots are available at the IHS clinic. Check schedule and do one more thing that protects your families and community.
