PREVENTION


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.

PREVENTION

 

We must all work together to prevent the spread of COVID on the reservation to protect our elders and our community. Our reservation has been severely impacted by this disease and the only way for us to return to our way of life—safely spending time with our friends and families, going out in public, and celebrating together—is to stop the spread.

Wearing a mask anytime your are away from home and near other people is very important. This helps our community by preventing the transmission of the virus from person to person—and preventing any one of us from getting the virus and bringing it home. Masks are not perfect, but they are very effective at preventing the spread of the virus if we all wear them correctly, whenever we are near people we do not live with.
