Fort Belknap and Fort Peck Reservations fight to maintain low COVID numbers
July 15, 2020
On the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, tribal officials aren't taking any chances with COVID-19.
In late June, the Assiniboine and Sioux tribes ordered the closure of their headquarters – for the second time – along with all other tribal community buildings.
The 10-day closure was prompted by the discovery through contact tracing that a person from Carbon County who had tested positive for COVID-19 had entered the headquarters building. The building was cleaned and fumigated and all staff members were tested for the virus.
