Current Incident Command Guidelines for the Umatilla Indian Reservation

Updated: 3 days ago

As of December 3, 2020 - In effect until further notice

Based upon the recommendations of the Tribal public health authority, the Incident Command Team (ICT) has adopted the State of Oregon guidance to counties reflected in its Sector Risk Level Guidance Chart. At this time, and until further notice, the Umatilla Indian Reservation is in the Extreme Risk category. In line with this guidance, Wildhorse Resort and Casino and other businesses on the Reservation will continue operate as they have been during the two-week “freeze” that just ended. The restrictions on activities continue to include the following:

  • All restaurants and bars within the CTUIR boundaries continue to operate as take-out only with outdoor dining options where outside accommodations are available.

  • Indoor recreational facilities, museums, and indoor entertainment will remain closed. This means Tamastslikt Cultural Institute, Wildhorse Cineplex, Quaking Aspens Lanes, and the Family Funplex Arcade remain closed.

  • All entities and departments of the CTUIR should mandate that employees work from home when possible and close offices to the public unless they provide essential operations.

  • Mission Market offering drive-up service only and Arrowhead capacity limited to 50%.

  • Visits at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities on the UIR are prohibited.

  • Social gatherings, whether indoors or out, limited to no more than six people from two households. WRC Hotel remains cognizant of its being a place of gathering when local reservations are made.

  • Worship services will be limited to 25 people when indoors and 50 people when outdoors. Longhouse services have been cancelled until further notice.

  • Travel restricted to a 75 mile radius. Those that travel outside of 75 miles are asked to self-quarantine for 14 days upon return. Employees will need to telecommute or use appropriate leave as necessary; appropriate leave is up to the entities to determine.

  • No change to K-12 schools, higher education, sports, Division 1 athletics, and childcare services currently operating.

  • Hair salons, barber shops and massage parlors can all continue under their current operations.

  • Outdoor recreational facilities on the CTUIR such as the golf course may remain open, although they may want to limit the number of people golfing together.
