July 29, 2020 - COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH MEMO
Sarah Wilborn, Public Health Officer

A Swinomish Casino & Lodge employee tested positive for COVID-19 in the most recent round of routine testing, which occurs every 14 days for all casino employees as part of the safety plan developed by both the casino and the Swinomish Public Health Team. This is the first positive case after having conducted over 1,000 tests since reopening the casino. The employee is asymptomatic and is now in quarantine at home in Skagit County.

There is no evidence that the employee who tested positive had contacts with any guests at the casino. The employee works in a “back of the house” function at the casino, does not have any job duties involving direct contact with guests, and had limited contact with a small number of other employees.

The Swinomish Public Health Team and casino management took immediate steps to identify close contacts of the employee and instruct them to quarantine. The Swinomish Tribe is also working with the Skagit County Public Health Department to help with follow up investigation and contact tracing.

I’m glad to report that our proactive testing plan worked as intended – to identify asymptomatic cases early and take immediate steps to isolate and quarantine. Testing, along with wearing masks and washing hands, are important tools in the Tribe’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
