Virus spread forces lockdown on another tribal reservation

 

August 10, 2020



HELENA, Mont. -- The Crow Tribe in Montana ordered its members to lock down for two weeks beginning Friday as tribal leaders moved to slow a sharp spike in coronavirus cases and deaths on yet another reservation in the country.

Crow Tribe Chairman Alvin Not Afraid said the lockdown is necessary because a stay-at-home order in effect since mid-March has been ineffective.

“We cannot afford to risk our future and the risks are just too great for the Crow people,” Not Afraid said.
