COVID: Basic Information for the Fort Peck Reservation

The coronavirus has hit our community very hard. Many of us know someone who has been sick with this awful virus. We will be updating this website regularly for our members and the greater community often with new information about resources from the Tribes and information about how we can prevent COVID on the Fort Peck Reservation. This page is still under development, so check back often for new information, more resources, and more tools.

Basic Information on COVID19 and Public Health
for our Reservation

COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus, first identified in China in December, 2019. Since then, it has spread to nearly every corner of the world; the WHO declared it a pandemic on March 11, 2020. The Fort Peck Tribes have been responding to the pandemic since March, trying to stop transmission and protect our people, especially our elders, who are at high risk of severe disease and death from this illness.

On the reservation, since the pandemic was declared, COVID has caused:

  • 738 cases
  • 32 deaths
    *Data as of 12/4/2020
