The Yurok Tribe has adopted a general framework, the Yurok Tribe’s Plan for Reducing Risk of COVID-19 Spread (“COVID-19 Plan”), based on a “tier” system that uses metrics that are tethered to readily available local health data. This framework is not, and will not, be the sole regulatory framework, but instead provides a clear general overview for different sectors and the general public based on the level of identified risk. This COVID-19 Plan also indicates which sectors are subject to more specific guidance and regulations. 


If you have a question, please call the Yurok Tribe’s COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-225-8952. Yurok OES is available to assist local businesses and individuals with questions related to compliance.
