July 28, 2021 - COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE
Thank you to everyone who tested for COVID-19 this week. There is one new confirmed case in the community today, but there are many lab results still pending.
Masks are required indoors and in crowds on the Swinomish Reservation regardless of your vaccination status and are recommended for use off-reservation in public spaces and crowded areas. This is also the latest recommendation from the CDC for anywhere there is substantial spread, which includes Skagit County. You can get a county-by-county view of the current situation here: covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view.
It is urgent that we do all we can to keep the COVID-19 Delta variant, which is highly contagious and can cause serious illness, from becoming more prominent here at Swinomish. The best tool we have to stop the spread is vaccination.
Most positive cases are among those who are not vaccinated. If you are unvaccinated, you are at very high risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and getting seriously ill in the coming days and weeks. Masking and physical distancing are very important, but getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, protect high-risk individuals, and protect those who are not able to be vaccinated, which includes children under 12 years old.
Please get your vaccine today. You can the Medical Clinic at (360) 466-3176 to make an appointment or follow this link to find a vaccination location near you: vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov
