The Ute Mountain Tribe Council has tightened community restrictions in response to an increase in COVID-19 cases on the reservation.

Last week, the tribal council increased its emergency status to the Red, Critical Stage – the highest of four levels – for the Towaoc and White Mesa reservation communities.

As a result, the tribe has returned to a stay-at-home order for residents, and the curfew has been tightened to the hours of 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Facial masks are required at all times, travel is restricted with within a 25-mile radius, 6-foot social distancing remains in effect, and gatherings are limited to 10 people. Travel is allowed only to obtain essential supplies and for medical appointments.
