The number of COVID-19 cases in Douglas County has risen steeply, inundating our local public health and medical resources. The impacts are far-reaching, including operational impacts at the Cow Creek Government Office and affiliated Tribal offices and businesses.
Until further notice, the Cow Creek Government Office will be closed to Tribal members and the public. Staff continues to work to keep services and departments operating. This closure does not apply to Cow Creek Health and Wellness Clinic locations, they remain open (call 541-672-8533 to schedule appointments).
A significant number of local COVID-19 cases are among unvaccinated individuals. Vaccination significantly reduces a person’s chance of hospitalization and developing major illness. Visit the Cow Creek Public Health page for more on COVID testing and vaccine sites.
