March 2020 Issue of Squol Quol.

The first page of the March 2020 issue of Squol Quol, the Lummi Nation’s newspaper, shows how hard the tribe has been hit by the coronavirus.

In less than three weeks, the tribe went from zero COVID-19 cases to 17. Of those, nine live on the reservation,  according to Squol Quol.

With more than 5,000 citizens, the tribe is the third largest in Washington. The state was among the earliest known outbreaks of the coronavirus in the U.S.
