Dear Tribal Leaders, Public Health Officials, and Indian Country Professionals,
Good afternoon, I’ve had the pleasure to visit with many of you since our conference call last week. Thank you for your correspondence on the critical issues your communities are facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. I will continue to touch base with each of you who have reached out as quickly as possible.
The Indian Country COVID-19 Response Team is continuing to engage through the Tribal Leaders and Urban Indian Organization Leaders Conference call hosted by the Indian Health Service on Thursdays at 3:30PM. This week, in addition to our regular updates from Admiral Weahkee, we are featuring presentations from the Federal Emergency Management Agency* and the Small Business Administration on disaster assistance resources managed by the agencies. The agenda is available HERE and I encourage you all to join us to continue our dialogue.
