Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs

WARM SPRINGS (KTVZ) -- The Warm Springs Indian Reservation's COVID-19 case count rose by three to 14 on Tuesday, officials said as new safety actions were adopted for residents and businesses.

The Warm Springs Health and Wellness Center said it has now sent in or tested 210 test samples, with 195 negative, five pending and 14 positive. Four of those who contracted COVID-19 have recovered, according to CEO Hyllis Dauphinais, Sr.

The Warm Springs Tribal Council said it has approved more safety actions for the Warm Springs community and tribal employees. All citizens will wear a face covering (mask) while in public or in public places, where social distancing of six feet or greater cannot be maintained.

If a test was taken, whether negative or positive, the person must self-isolate or quarantine as directed by health care professionals.

Businesses located on-reservation will mark spaces to demonstrate safe distancing of six feet on floors or some other means to visual space apart.

Zip codes will be the area OHA will use in reporting results. Closure of the tribal government will be through May 29. General managers and directors will determine what staff are to return and when.

Please be reminded: “This recommendation is contingent on test results and community safety. If we continue to see positive cases in the community, this plan will be adjusted accordingly. We need to ensure the safety of our community.” Tribal Council, WS Health and Wellness Center and CoVID-19 Response team.
