SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. —On April 7, Sault Tribe’s government extended its temporary closure of all governmental offices, with a planned reopen date of May 3. All government team members are considered on call with many working from home. The closure started March 23 with a plan to reopen April 13. Due to the ongoing climbing number of COVID-19 cases in Michigan, the tribe is extending the emergency closure until May 3 to protect tribal members, team members and their families from exposing themselves to COVID-19.

Tribal team members’ emergency pay will continue with exception of seasonal team members and those who may be given temporary lay-off status. Team members should contact their supervisors with any questions.
