Tribal checkpointS

The Department of Tourism created a document with visitor information about documented tribal checkpoints. Checkpoints have been put in place by some tribes to protect their residents from additional COVID-19 exposure. Travelers should be aware and mindful that there could be checkpoints on some highways or tribal lands. Check or call 5-1-1 for up-to-date road information.
