The Bishop Paiute Tribe COVID-19 Response Project will implement strategies to protect the health and safety of the approximately 1750 Tribal members and numerous non-members living on the 875 acre reservation in the isolated Owens Valley of Inyo County. On March 17, 2020 the Bishop Paiute Tribal Council declared a state of emergency to exist on the Bishop Paiute Reservation in order to minimize the threat of potential outbreak and spread of COVID-19, to make resources available, and to formalize emergency actions already underway. All facilities were closed and all events cancelled. Staff were to work remotely. The Tribe is still closed and will not open until Tribal Council and Administration feel comfortable with the safety of doing so. There are added concerns about future illness that some officials have been predicting. Because we know how quickly events can happen, we are seeking funding to strengthen the Tribe's preparedness and our ability to respond. Our strategies are to protect and isolate at-risk families, to increase our capacity to communicate information and outreach to our people, to keep staff safe, to create a dedicated emergency operations center, and to create a Recovery Plan to restore pre-event functioning.
