Crow Chairman issues stay at home order, closes mountains

Crow Tribal Chairman Alvin Not Afraid Jr. issued an executive order mandating all tribal members to stay home in order to control the potential spread of the novel coronavirus, according to a press release issued by the tribe Friday.

The order, which goes into effect March 28 at 12:01 a.m. and stays in effect until April 10, also closes the reservation to all non-local recreation, the Big Horn County News reports.

The Big Horn Mountains and Pryor Mountains are also closed per the order.
