Siletz Tribe closes government offices


The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians is heeding recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and multiple state and federal agencies. Beginning March 17 until further notice, the Siletz Tribe continues to provide essential services through alternate means and has closed all government offices to walk-in clients.

Tribal members and clients can access essential services via the telephone, email or regular mail. Non-essential services, meetings and appointments are being rescheduled for a later date.

The Siletz Community Health Clinic is open for critical services, but ill patients are asked to call the clinic to enable medical staff to triage patients prior to being seen. Patients can call the clinic at 541-444-1030 or 800-648-0449. All non-critical care through the clinic is being rescheduled.

Chinook Winds Casino Resort has closed its doors for two weeks. During this time, staff will conduct a deep clean in preparation for its reopening. For more information about Chinook Winds Casino Resort, please check the casino’s website at chinookwindscasino.com for updated details.

The Siletz Tribal Council, Tribal administration, Chinook Winds staff, Siletz Tribal Gaming Commission, Siletz Tribal Business Corporation and all Tribal offices throughout the state encourage everyone to stay home if possible, practice social distancing, assist one another as needed during these unprecedented times and stay safe.
