Tribal Health is working very hard to help stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our community, and to protect the health and safety of our patients and health care providers.

 

COVID-19 symptoms include:

  • cough
  • fever
  • difficulty breathing (severe cases)

 

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call your health care provider immediately.

 

Patients are asked to call the main phone at 406-745-3525 before coming into each Health Center and/or if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

 

You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing (social distancing).
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance.

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.
