Stay At Home Resolution Re-Instated Effective Immediately

Resolution No. 54-20 (Click to follow link..)

Because of a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases on the CRIT Reservation and in an abundance of caution, CRIT Chairman Dennis Patch is re-instating the previously approved "Stay at Home Order" also known as Resolution 54-20. These include:

  • A reservation-wide curfew shall remain in effect for all individuals from 10pm to 5am with the exception of travel foressential work or medical care.

  • All private gatherings, including wakes and funerals, of more than 6 people shall be postponed (excluding members of the same household). In addition, there is no non-essential travel.

  • Recreational activities are suspended. 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 excludes large groups playing group sports, contact or not.

The requirements of the Stay At Home Order are enforceable by issuance of civil citation with fines from $100 up to $1000 for intentional or repear violations.

However, tribal enterprises and departments will rmain operational with current safety protocols, including continued compliance with the reservation wide Face Mask mandate.

Indeed, the "Safer At Home Resolution" requires Chairman to reinstate the "Stay at Home Order" if there is an 8% or more bi-weekly change of Indian Health Services COVID-19 cases. There has been a 9.1% increase of cases reported as of December 23rd. Indian Health Services has reported 113 cases to date in December alone, which is more than the 100 cases reported August through November combined.

Chairman Patch stated, "The health and safety of the people of CRIT must come first. We cannot take chances with this deadly pandemic. We must all do our part to keep COVID-19 from spreading and these measures are the best way to accomplish that. I realize this comes during the holidays. But it's better to take precautions now so that our family and loved ones will be with us for years to come. Many of our tribal member families are currently ill with COVID-19 and will be recuperating this Christmas and New Year holiday. Our thoughts and prayers are with each one of you for a quick recovery. We know we can turn the tide of ths surge in cases if everyone stays at home with immediate family only and avoids all non-essential activities and travel."
