FORT BELKNAP, Mont. (NMB) – The Fort Belknap Indian Community Council has announced that the Reservation will remain in Phase 2B of their reopening plan for the remainder of November.
The curfew restrictions have been lifted, and businesses can return to normal business hours.
Travel restrictions remain in place, including avoiding areas that have been determined to be “hotspots,” with those that have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 requested to self-quarantine upon their return to the Reservation.
The resolution was unanimously passed by the Council and strongly encourages residents to wear masks and social distance when possible. Masks remain required in many situations.
Employees of Tribal Programs are required to wear masks while at work, as is the public when they visit these offices.
Restaurants and casinos can operate at 75 percent capacity and will continue to require masks, with the exception being when eating or drinking in a restaurant.
Local Fort Belknap transportation buses are now allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity.
The Incident Command Team is expected to update the Council later this month as to the status of the pandemic on the Reservation.
