CRIT has its first case of COVID-19 on the reservation, according to the Colorado River Indian Tribes Department of Health and Social Services.
The first presumptive positive case resulting from an individual seeking medical care at the Parker Indian Health Center was announced Friday night. The individual is a resident of the CRIT reservation.
The Department of Health and Social Services will work in conjunction with Parker Indian Health Center to identify and notify any contacts the individual may have had recently. The Department asked anyone who has symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, headache, myalgias (body aches), chills, repeating shaking with chills, and new loss of taste or smell to contact the Parker Indian Health Center or their primary physician.
CRIT’s stay-at-home order was extended recently until the end of May.
