Tonkawa Tribe of Oklahoma made the announcement Thursday that all Tonkawa Tribal offices will be closed for the next week.
This is due to an exposure of COVID-19 in the Tonkawa community and tribe. However, there are no confirmed positive cases at this time. The Tonkawa Tribe continues to take necessary precautions for everyone’s health and safety.
In addition, the tribal quarterly meeting originally scheduled for Saturday, June 13, has been canceled.
COVID-19 is affecting other local tribal complexes as well, including the Otoe-Missouria. (See here)
