The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are continuously monitoring the ongoing and evolving changes regarding the COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. We are taking precautionary measures and doing our part in containing the virus. Unprecedented safety measures are being taken nation-wide due to the Coronavirus.
Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes leadership’s decisions in part are based off recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and also the World Health Organization (WHO).
The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes employees and tribal citizens are highly encouraged to utilize the following safety precautions:
- Practice social distancing. Stay home and keep visitors to a minimum. Do not participate in shopping or other outside activities that are not necessary.
- If you are sick, call your doctor ahead of time and explain your symptoms to them.
- Wash our hands as often as possible and avoid facial contact.
The virus can be spread person-to-person, likely via coughing and sneezing, handshaking, or other close contact with an infected person. Common symptoms of illness will include fever, cough and shortness of breath. While the primary risk factor has been travel history, or being in close contact with a confirmed patient, there has been transmission of the virus not related to these causes.
