I. COVID-19
We have had a total of 26 Total Positive Cases. All of the cases have been resolved as of today. 16 cases were resolved on the Reservation and 10 off the Reservation.
We continue to work through COVID Projects and are preparing a list to provide to the Community.
II. General Welfare Distributions

REMINDER: The General Welfare Distribution Applications be online at https://spokanetribe.com/government/finance/
III. Emergency Residential Internet
The Verizon Jetpacks were issued on October 8th and 9th last week. Over 75 Jetpacks were issued in those two days. There are jetpacks still available at the Tribal Planning Office. The final day for issuing Jetpacks will be October 31st. The process for issuing the Jetpacks is as follows: Families are asked if they have Verizon signal at their home. If they do then they are issued a jetpack. If for some reason, the jetpack is not getting a good signal at their home, they are given the information to sign up for SimpliUnlimited satellite service. Both services are completely free to the Tribal member for nine months. For questions or information on the Emergency Residential Internet options contact Maria Cullooyah at 509-993-6679 or email her at mariac@spokanetribe.com.
