Dear Tribal Members, Reservation Residents, and Tribal Employees,

I want to thank every one of you once again for all you have done to help keep our community and Reservation safe and healthy.

Now, as we come up on the Fourth of July holiday, we all must continue to play it safe. We have to keep practicing our social distancing. Wear face masks. Limit our contact with those outside our households. Continue staying close to home, and refrain from unnecessary travel outside our local area. When we do interact with others, please stay outside and keep 6 feet apart. If you are high-risk, stay home as much as you can, for your own safety and health, and those you love. Wash your hands. And if you aren’t sure what is the right decision, just play it safe.

I know this is not easy for any of us. But the good news is that our work is continuing to pay off. We see that in the good health in our community, our friends and neighbors, and in the negative coronavirus test results at the Swinomish Medical Clinic.

I want to be clear – we are not out of the woods yet. So please stay safe, stay healthy and take care of one another.

Steve Edwards, Chairman
