EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT

Program Services during Tribal Administration Office Closures

Due to COVID-19

Due to the dangers of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and to reduce the exposure risk to employees, Tribal Members and the community at-large, The Klamath Tribes is closing the majority of the Tribal offices and suspending non-essential services. This action will help assure that we are able to continue to provide essential services to our Tribal Members during these uncertain times.


Below, is an outline of Tribal Administration services deemed essential for the ongoing wellness and health of all Tribal Members. Employees responsible for each of these essential services will be working remotely during regular business hours and will be available via email and telephone. If you are in need of assistance, which may not appear as part of an essential service, please leave a General Message at 1-800-524-9787 and a staff member will call you back ASAP. We will continue to update Tribal Members on a regular basis as circumstances warrant and updates will be posted via social media, emails and voice messages.


All phone messages will be returned within 2 hours of leaving a message during regular business hours.
