The Colville Tribal Emergency Operations Center continues to work with area partners to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on the Colville Indian Reservation.

Alongside Colville Tribal Area Agency on Aging, the EOC has helped deliver over 500 meals daily to elders across the reservation, totaling over 35,000 meals since the beginning of the incident. AAOA and the EOC further have worked to provide chore services and other services that help elders stay home and stay safe.

The EOC further works alongside area clinics, which have tested 631 patients for COVID-19 to date. The Colville Service Unit and Lake Roosevelt Community Health Centers have also begun random testing at their clinics across the reservation. Random testing will allow any patient who comes into a clinic to be tested if they would like. Read more about random testing here.

The EOC futher has worked to provide personal protective equipment, guidance and cleaning supplies to tribal business in an effort to protect customers and employees on the Colville Reservation and in traditional territories.

If you have questions, please call the EOC at 509-634- 7350.
