COVID-19 Community Updates

Information and updates regarding COVID-19 from the Stockbridge-Munsee Community

  • The Stockbridge-Munsee Tribal Council and the SMC COVID-19 Taskforce continue to work diligently in fighting the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Tribal Leadership is in constant contact with its national and state peers to advocate on behalf of not only the Tribal Membership, but members of the community and their employees for resources such as access to COVID-19 testing and COVID-19 vaccines.   

  • This Plan is based on the approach outlined in the COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations (Version 2.0; referred to as “Playbook”) issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Tribe agreed to comply with the Playbook in the vaccine distribution agreement with Indian Health Service (IHS). Changes required by federal law are incorporated automatically.  

  • This Plan outlines the Stockbridge-Munsee Community’s overall approach of how quarantine and isolation status is applied during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The Tribe has authorized the issuance of isolation and quarantine orders for communicable diseases, like COVID-19, under Chapter 26A of tribal law.
