Kickapoo Tribe confirms two virus cases
05/15/2020

(KAIR)--The Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas has confirmed its first two positive cases of COVID-19 on the Kickapoo Reservation, located west of Horton, in Brown County.

According to a news release from Tribal Chairman Lester Randall, both diagnosed individuals are self-isolating.

The two cases are not connected and both individuals, who reside on the Kickapoo Reservation, contracted the disease outside of the Reservation boundaries.

Staff for both the Tribe and the Casino were notified of the positive tests late Thursday.

As a safety precaution, the Tribe has closed its Golden Eagle Casino until June 1, at which time they will re-evaluate the health data and consult with public health officials to determine the appropriate course of action.

Randall, in the release reiterated the importance of being cautious, saying to ‘follow self-distancing guidelines, wash your hands frequently, stay home when you feel ill and wear a mask in public if at all possible.”
