Native youth friendly Resources for COVID-19

Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board (NPAIHB), at the direction of our 43 member tribes, has declared a public health emergency related to COVID-19. NPAIHB strongly recommends that our member tribes, and tribes nationwide, mitigate the pandemic by taking steps to stop the spread of COVID-19, by closing non-essential services within their tribal communities.

  • NPAIHB supports each tribe defining essential services and that essential services be limited to those necessary for public health and safety.
  • NPAIHB recommends tribes immediately enact shelter in place for their communities and people and cancel all social gatherings to stop the spread of COVID-19 and that all AI/AN people “stay home.”
  • NPAIHB recommends that all tribes, AI/AN people, and all people practice social distancing when out of the home (accessing or providing essential services).
