Good guidelines. πŸ‘ wish the people here in Yakima and valley like Wapato n Toppenish would follow these. Esp. Topp any place you go they're kids are everywhere touching everything and you can't say anything cuz they say "no english" its so frustrating. I go to store for my weekly lunch and work supplies. I miss πŸ“ Dear Abbey 😳😳😞😞....

Yes, Hines is a vital source for our community! Wipe down the shopping cart after you use it too!

Gotta keep the store open, they're right. I don't want to have to go to town where we know the virus is .

Thank you!

As you may or may not know we have had our first case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Wind River Reservation. This case is related to the first case that originated in Lander. As we investigate this case and hear more about the other cases in the county we have good reason to believe that there are many more cases in the community.

There is no cure and no treatment for this virus. It can be deadly especially to elders and to those with other chronic diseases. The only way to protect yourself your family and especially our elders is for people to avoid getting the disease. in addition to frequent and proper hand-washing, social distancing which is staying 6 feet away from other people, not shaking hands, not touching your face you covering your mouth when you cough preferably with a Kleenex that you can throw away or with your elbow the most important thing that everyone can do is to not be around other people as much as possible.

In light of this we are recommending that all tribal members stay at home this weekend unless they have an emergency of some kind. You should not congregate in groups, you should not go to the store unless you absolutely have to, you should not go visit other tribal members who do not live in your home and should avoid gatherings of any kind.

These are tough and scary times. I know that many of these suggestions go against tribal traditions and family structure. However it is very very important that we not be exposed and that we do not expose other tribal members especially our elders. We asked all tribal members to please comply with these recommendations.

Why don’t the tribe just open up hunting for tribal members without charging them to buy tags there are alot of people that are going to need food when the whites are buying out the meats in most stores

I’m a tribal member using my wife’s social network cause I don’t have one
