Elders are especially encouraged to use the assessment if they have ANY COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms

The Colville Tribes Emergency Operations Center and Nespelem Service Unit will host a drive-thru COVID-19 Assessment and Screening event Thursday.

The event, which is for tribal members with COVID-19 or flu like symptoms, will be held Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Nespelem Agency Campus clinic.

Through the drive-thru participants will be allowed to remain in their vehicles as they are screened and potentially tested for COVID-19 or other illnesses.

Elders and any one who has come into contact with someone positive are especially encouraged to use the assessment if they have ANY COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms.

To ensure social distancing, participants are encouraged to have only two passengers in each car.

The event is open to current IHS patients and it is conducted in coordination with the Colville Tribes.

For emergencies, call 9-1-1.
