Warm Springs Reservation mandates masks, quarantine

WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) — The Warm Springs Reservation has become the first government in Oregon to require quarantine and masks under certain circumstances amid the coronavirus pandemic. Oregon Public Broadcasting reports the Tribal Council this week ordered any citizen or tribal employee working on the reservation to self-isolate if a healthcare professional says they should. It comes after a spike in positive COVID-19 tests on the reservation, where citizens are also being told to wear face masks in public if they can’t maintain 6 feet of distance.
