Expect a soread people are not practicing the shelter in place. I see neighbors getting rides with diffetent people and crissing the street to visit. Sitting in cars and family members visiting is not going to prevent the spread? Our entire household is at risk with many underlying conditions. When do the people around here have to follow recommendations? We all have to make sacrafices but we also need to make sure people are taking this seriously.

I see that too. I think because its “family”, they don’t realize the danger.
I know there’s HIPPA and all but is it possible to list the GENERAL area of the reservation it was confirmed in? Maybe that itself would send a greater alert to people. Prayers for the family for healing. 🙏🏽

I wish some young people would do a report to the young people. Too many just do not take this seriously.
