Considerations for Non-emergency Vehicle Transportation for Tribal Communities During COVID-19

Tribal members who have tested positive for COVID-19, who are sick, or who have recently had a close contact (closer than 6 feet) to a person with COVID-19 should not transport others in their vehicle or ride in a shared vehicle. They should stay home except to seek medical care.

Whenever possible, tribal members seeking medical care for COVID-19 should transport themselves in vehicles with no passengers. If unable to transport themselves, drivers can do the following when transporting a sick passenger suspected or confirmed as having COVID-19 for medical care.
