As of Aug. 10, CTWS reported 212 positive COVID-19 cases and the majority of people who live on the reservation were still on a boil water notice.

The health department's announcement stated that new supplies are preferred so that the items do not have to be quarantined before distribution. In particular, the agency is looking for shampoo, castile soap, deodorant, non-alcoholic mouthwash, sunscreen and lotion, flashlights, baby supplies, cleaning supplies, clothes, camping equipment and water.

The Central Oregon Black Leaders Assembly and Bellatazza Coffee are also continuing a water donation drive: find more information on the COBLA Facebook page.
