FEELING SICK?


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.
