Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus Disease 2019

The Indian Health Service continues to work closely with our tribal partners and state and local public health officials to coordinate a comprehensive public health response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

This is a rapidly evolving situation. More cases of COVID-19 are likely to be identified in the coming days. The potential public health threat posed by COVID-19 is very high. We must be vigilant in our efforts to slow the spread of infections among our patients and within the communities we serve.

The federal government is working closely with state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, as well as public health partners, to respond to this public health threat.

For the latest general information about COVID-19, we encourage everyone to periodically review CDC’s COVID-19 webpage Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving  . Information specific to the federal response in Indian Country can be found below.
