Dauphinais, Sr. from CoVID-19 Update
The general news around Oregon is the expectations of more positive cases due to more interactions between people; more tests for the virus and some hot spots due to employees working in close proximity to each other, all increasing the positive numbers. Locally the “new normal” has mask zones into all tribal buildings; temperature checking before entering work areas; continued social distancing and washing hands throughout the day….all helping to limit the chances of getting the Corona Virus-19 disease.
Please do your part to not bring the virus home. If instructed by our medical professionals to quarantine or isolate.
STAY HOME, SAVE LIVES
