Statement From The CRIT Tribal Council on Stay At Home Rules Extended Until July 31st
June 29, 2020

(Parker, AZ) The CRIT Tribal Council has voted to extend the stay-at-home resolution until the end of July. The continued and dramatic increase in the number of COVID-19 cases necessitates the decision which was made to ensure the health and safety of CRIT tribal members.

The extension of the Stay-at-Home resolution includes the BlueWater Resort and Casino which will not be opening on July 1st.

Additionally, due to the virus, there will be no 4th of July event or fireworks.

Face mask requirements enacted in June will remain in effect until further notice.

All individuals (within the exterior boundaries of the CRIT Reservation) are required to stay at home, with the except for essential personnel. Individuals may only leave their homes out of absolute necessity for their health, safety, or welfare—such as obtaining medical care, food, or traveling to an essential job function. Only one individual in the household should be sent out to conduct essential business, such as grocery shopping, except where assistance is required, or no one is in the home to care for young children.

Recreational activities are suspended on the Colorado River Indian Reservation. This includes permitted and open access to the Colorado River, and orders temporary suspension for fishing, hunting, camping, and other recreational permits. This does not include individuals or family units from walking around their neighborhood, playing outside in their yard, running, or biking provided social distancing is practiced. This does exclude large groups playing group sports, contact, or not.

CRIT’s Tribal Council decided to extend the restrictions just prior to Governor Doug Ducey’s announcement of spike in statewide COVID-19 cases.

CRIT wishes to thank the community for its patience as it strives to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

CRIT remains committed to working with everyone within our sovereign tribal lands to limit the spread of the Coronavirus for the health, safety and welfare of all.

The restrictions will remain in place until July 31, 2020, or until Tribal Council, in consultation with public health officials, determines that the threat has decreased and these restrictions can be lifted.


Colorado River Indian Tribes' Statement on Use of Face Masks
June 19, 2020

(Parker, AZ) The Colorado River Indian Tribes is implementing a Reservation wide requirement to wear face masks while in public settings.  Given the rapid increase in positive COVID-19 cases it is time to take these additional steps to slow this surge of COVID-19 cases on the reservation.  Individuals shall be required to wear a face mask over their nose and mouth, which does include cloth masks or coverings, while in a public setting.

All businesses on the reservation shall require all staff and customers to wear a face mask while inside their premises.  This includes, but is not limited to, stores such as Wal-Mart and Safeway, restaurants including McDonalds, Subway and Taco Bell, and mobile home parks. The only exceptions to this requirement shall be children 2 and under, those with developmental disabilities or other medical conditions that prevents the wearing of a face mask.  This action will be ratified at the Tribal Council meeting on June 22 with additional details and parameters forthcoming.

ALL CRIT employees have been mandated to wear face masks while working since June 3rd, 2020.   CRIT Tribal Council has anticipated this now pressing need for face masks.  Early in this pandemic supply chains for face masks were very limited.  However, due to our planning CRIT has now obtained a substantial supply that allows us to provide face masks to our membership.  In order to assist our members with complying with this mandate CRIT will be providing face masks to tribal members beginning the week of June 22nd.  CRIT Departments and Enterprises are responsible to ensure they maintain adequate supplies of face masks for their staff, clients, and visitors through their own supply chains.

Everyone needs to do their part to slow this surge of COVID-19 cases.  We need to protect the most vulnerable in our community-our elders and those with medical conditions that place them at higher risk.  With everyone’s commitment to this new mandate and the CRIT Stay at Home Resolution #54-20 we can succeed in keeping our community safe and well.

  • Wear a face mask when you must leave your home to conduct essential tasks.

  • Avoid close contact with anyone outside of your immediate household.

  • Stay home when you are sick.
