COVID-19

The Chickasaw Nation and the Oklahoma State Department of Health are continuing to monitor the coronavirus, or COVID-19, which is still impacting countries around the world. We are working alongside our partners at the local, state and national levels to actively provide updates and information for Chickasaws, employees, the public and patrons of tribal facilities and businesses.

State public health officials are in contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as the situation changes. Chickasaw Nation leadership and emergency response teams are also communicating with state and federal health officials as we work together to meet this challenge.

Stay Healthy

The health and safety of Chickasaws, employees and patrons is our main priority. Our goal is to always maintain a clean, safe and healthy environment at all tribal properties. In addition to the strong safety measures we normally follow, we are taking extra precautions during this time to help maintain safe environments. Chickasaw Nation staff is trained to strictly follow CDC standards and guidance in regards to communicable diseases. Chickasaw Nation employees have also been asked to abide by the recommendations from the CDC:

  • Know how it spreads
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid close contact
    • Inside your home:  Maintain 6 feet between a sick person and yourself
    • Outside your home:  Put at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
  • Monitor your health daily

Get updated information about COVID-19 and how to stay healthy directly from the CDC.
