Hoopa ceases non-emergency operations, 6 active Covid-19 cases on the reservation

HOOPA, Calif. (KIEM) — The Hoopa Valley Reservation is shutting down all non-emergency operations for the next 14 days.

The decision made by the Hoopa Tribal Council is in response to having 6 active Covid-19 cases on the reservation right now. This time will allow for contact tracing to be completed, as well as give individual travel departments time to create re-opening safety plans.

The tribe has reestablished an incident management team to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19. The K’ima:w Medical Center would like to remind the community that travel outside of Humboldt County is restricted, and you must have an approved travel plan.
