SunUte Closure Notice

March 17, 2020

Greetings Southern Ute Tribal Members, SunUte/BGC members, Multi-Purpose Community/Chapel users and our community,

We feel that it is our responsibility to protect the Southern Ute Tribal Members, SunUte/BGC members and our community and have decided to take the proactive stance against the spread of the COVID-19 by closing at 6AM, March 18th, 2020 until further notice. This closure includes the Multi-Purpose Facility/Chapel, SunUte, SunUte 24/7 and Boys and Girls Club.

This decision was not taken lightly, and we understand that there will be a range of emotions and reactions. We are aware that this closure will impact your SunUte memberships and we are currently working out a plan so that no one is negatively impacted.

During the closure our Multi-Purpose, SunUte and BGC staff will conduct a deep cleaning and disinfection as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will also be assisting the Tribal organization by providing support for our Elders.

In case of a funeral, please contact the Executive Office.

We are committed to supporting you during these trying times. SunUte staff will post on our Facebook and the Website videos of workouts and suggestions for keeping your families healthy during our closure.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please be safe and take the necessary precautions.

Robin Duffy-Wirth and SunUte staff.
