June 19, 2020: Mendocino County announces Health Order Revision to Align with State Guidelines: click here.
The Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians is applying for an ICDBG CARES Act Imminent Threat grant. If our submission is approved, the Tribe would be eligible for up to $900,000 in grant funds from the Federal Government in order to prevent, prepare for, or respond to a COVID-19 outbreak. The Tribe intends to use any awarded grant funds to implement a gated community in the Housing Area of the Reservation. We would use the funds to install additional fencing, security gates, and checkpoints at the entrance of the Housing Area in order to safeguard our community and reduce the risk of our population’s exposure to COVID-19. Please contact the Tribal Administration office if you have any questions.
Update May 26: Notice for Mendocino County Business Owners regarding Stage 2 Re-Opening: Click Here.
As of May 1, 2020, facial coverings are required when in public in Mendocino County. For details click here. Adult masks were distributed to residents on April 24th. We are currently working on an order for youth masks.
We now offer an opt-in text messaging service to deliver updates and information to the community. Text ezCOYOTE to 44777 to opt-in. This replaces door-to-door contact during this pandemic.
4/16/2020: With the tragic and recent loss of Ashley Pulawa the EPD Department and Administration staff are working very hard on the community garden as it was her vision for her people. While it is always our goal to work with the community, the COVID-19 situation prevented that to its full extent. Once the restrictions on gathering and sheltering in place are lifted we will dedicate "Ashley's Garden" in her memory. In the next month we would like to invite community volunteers to sign-up for gardening tasks in order to fulfill Ashley's dream for a garden that brings together her family and community. If you are interested in volunteering and would like more information click here.
Mendocino County follows guidance to recommend face coverings for anyone outside of their home. A simple, homemade cloth mask will suffice. Visit the Coyote Valley Tribal Health Department's facebook for tips and videos. More information is available on the County website here.

Background - COVID_19
While we navigate these uncharted waters together, we fully want to keep communication open and offer support to the greatest extent possible. This temporary website is created to limit staff contact at each residence while also keeping members and residents informed.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a novel virus that spread worldwide. Community-acquired (acquired or arising in the general population: not acquired or arising in a hospital) cases have now been confirmed in Mendocino County. Researchers and medical doctors are working to understand more about COVID-19, to date no successful treatment or immunization is available. The complete clinical picture with regard to COVID-19 is not fully understood. Reported illnesses have ranged from mild to severe, including illness resulting in death. Older people, those with compromised immune systems, and people with certain underlying health conditions like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, for example, seem to be at greater risk of serious illness.
Protecting our elders, children, and community as a whole is of utmost importance. To that end, please adhere to the current Tribal and County orders.
Mendocino County Shelter in Place Order - Click here for the latest.
Residents must stay home to the maximum extent possible.
All persons on the Reservation must at all times wear a mask in all public spaces.
Additionally, continue to follow the Tribal mandates:
The housing areas of the Reservation are closed to non-residents until further notice.
Residents must not invite any non-resident to the housing areas of the Reservation, or permit them to enter their residence.
As we monitor the pandemic moving forward, the mandates may change based on need due to COVID-19 test results, monitoring the sewer system and the County and State situation. For your own health and the safety of all, please continue to:
Self-monitor for symptoms
Symptoms include but are not limited to cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, weakness, headache, muscle aches, abdominal pain, diarrhea. Contact your provider immediately if any of these symptoms are present. The absence of symptoms does not mean that a person does not have the virus—it is possible to be asymptomatic.
Consolidated Tribal Health will assess symptoms over the phone ((707) 485-5115) and will provide further instructions.
Quarantine with your household
Do not visit, gather or congregate with non-household members (including friends or relatives)
