CRIHB'S COVID-19 RESPONSE

CRIHB activated a COVID-19 Task Force on March 2, 2020, involving staff from the California Tribal Epidemiology Center (CTEC) and the following CRIHB departments: Finance, Health Systems Development, Human Resources, Office of the Chief Executive, Operations, Research and Public Health, and Tribal Child Development.

CRIHB is closely monitoring the outbreak of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 infection, which is caused by the SARS CoV-2 virus. COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath and more rarely, a severe respiratory illness requiring hospitalization. Please seek medical attention if you develop these symptoms, especially if you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with a COVID-19 infection. Please periodically check the CRIHB or the California Department of Public Health webpage to stay informed on the most current guidance. CRIHB is actively working with public health officials to keep our Tribal communities safe and informed.
