COVID-19 Pandemic Information


COVID-19 Testing on available to IHS Eligible Patients

Due to a rapid increase in demand for Covid-19 testing, and an expected national shortage of available tests, the Oyate Health Center will only provide testing to Indian Health Service eligible individuals. The Oyate Health Center will no longer provide testing for travelers. Newly published CDC guidelines suggest a five day quarantine for families who live with an individual who tests positive for COVID-19.
