The partial shutdown of the CSKT government remains in place by declaration of the Tribal Council.

First declared on March 16, and extended indefinitely on March 24, 2020, Tribal Council is reviewing the partial shutdown as the COVID-19 situation develops. The order was passed to slow the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

No end date has been given, but Council is watching the COVID situation closely.

Any changes to our current status will be announced on CSKT.ORG, your work email, RAVE Alerts and The Char-Koosta News Facebook Page, and the weekly print version of the paper.

The battle to contain COVID-19 has reached a new stage and we need to buckle down harder to keep our families and loved ones safe through social distancing and shelter-in-place practices.
The coronavirus is now passing between people within Missoula County. The community spread phase is the most concerning stage as this is when infection numbers start increasing quickly. The sacrifices we make NOW are crucial in limiting the spread of this highly contagious illness that has no known cure. We will hold strong. We will get through this. Thank you for keeping us safe.
