Special Notices:

Nov 18 Update: A Tribal member on government staff and a member of their household tested positive today. Close contacts have been notified. They had no close contacts with Tribal staff.

Nov 16 Update: We have a COVID positive related to close contact from last week (not government or PME staff) and two Tribal Elder households are quarantining. If anyone in your home is ill,  do not allow anyone in your home except medical staff. Stay home, mask up, do not gather with others outside your home.

Nov 10 Update: A Tribal member has tested positive for COVID-19 after returning from travel. Two other Tribal members in that household are now quarantined, but no other close contacts have been identified. Please remember to be extra careful — cases around the country and here in Kitsap County are spiking!

Nov 3 Update: Since Oct 29, we have registered four new positive COVID-19 cases in the Suquamish community. So far these cases have not impacted Tribal members or families. These include:

  1. One person who worked in PME Administration
  2. One person who worked on the floor at the Casino – however this person had not worked during the time he or she would have been contagious, and we believe the virus was contracted elsewhere. (Note: This person is not included on the Tribe’s dashboard since they were not tested at our facilities)
  3. Two cases were family members of people who tested positive.

We believe that all four of these individuals would have had minimal contact with Tribal members or staff, and they are all currently isolating at home. Nonetheless, as our region and nation experience a spike in COVID-19 cases, we urge you to take all the precautions that have kept numbers in Suquamish low thus far.

If you would like to be tested, COVID-19 Testing and Flu shots are available Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 12pm for Tribal members and Tribal member families (including children), PME and Tribal government employees. No appointment is needed during these hours. If you have even mild symptoms, we encourage you to come get tested for COVID-19. We can also test if you are not having symptoms. If afternoon appointments are needed please make arrangements by calling Mickenzy Cordova at (360) 394-7177 or Barbara Hoffman at (360) 394-8468. Afternoon appointments are not available on Friday.

Notes:

*Isolated: Number of active COVID-19 cases currently being monitored by Suquamish Community Health.

*Quarantined: Number of persons who had close contact with an active case and are completing a 14-day quarantine with monitoring by Suquamish Community Health.
