Tribal Administration learned that an employee who has been working inside the Administration Building and EQC tent this week has tested positive for COVID-19. Earlier Friday, another employee who had not been in the workplace recently had also reported a positive case.


Per its COVID-19 protocol, Administration closed the building and scheduled a deep cleaning to be finished by Monday. The building already was closed to the community through March 5.


Human Resources is contact tracing. Employees who they determine have been exposed will need to quarantine and will qualify for paid administrative leave.
