With rising cases, Blackfeet Country invokes 14-day COVID shutdown order


September 30, 2020

On Monday evening, Sept. 28, Blackfeet Chairman Tim Davis noted Glacier County having posted 133 cases of COVID-19 over the week-end.

“It’s very alarming,” he said, with workers at the Blackfeet Care Center, Tribal Security and EMS having tested positive. As a result, he said, the Tribe decided to go to a 14-day shutdown to keep the virus from spreading further.

“Our staff is overworked and they’re testing positive, so it’s a real pandemic and folks need to wear masks and follow social distancing. It’s not like the flu,” Davis said.
