  • COVID-19 Best Practices for Tribal Communities: Recommendations for Ceremonies & Gatherings

Who is this Collection for?

This checklist is for tribal community elders and leaders. It contains recommendations on how to handle ceremonies and gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The best way to host gatherings during a fast-spreading viral outbreak like COVID-19 would be to hold it virtually. If that’s not possible, breaking into smaller groups would help promote social distancing. There is also the option to postpone or reschedule all social events, but in any case public health has to come first. Tribe members who are participating in ceremonies and other community gatherings should avoid close interaction with others and wash their hands before and after using shared facilities. This will help to preserve the overall health of the community.


Why is this Collection important?

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted the globe. The entire human race has suffered a loss, not necessarily just a loss of material, but a loss of a lifestyle. In consequence, many businesses, teams, and communities have been hit hard. Tribal communities are no exception, and have been in fact especially affected by the pandemic. It is important that we come together to create and improve upon plans for these spaces to thrive once again.


How should I use this collection?

This collection should be utilized as a foundational/base guideline for the purpose it covers. In this case for: cleaning and disinfecting practices to implement throughout the day as needed to protect employees and customers from COVID-19.

Again, it’s important to note that the templates here should not be your single source for truth. The pandemic is an ever changing landscape. Please consult your team, your state health departments, and other reliable sources to keep up to date with standards and procedures.


How do I upload this into my UpKeep account?

These templates you’ll be able to download below will function as a “Checklists” on UpKeep. Checklists allow you to quickly reuse specific Task Items in work orders. Most commonly, these are used for inspections where you have a list of subtasks or checklist items that you’d like to include as part of a work order.

*It’s important to note that you would need to be an “Admin” user on UpKeep to be able to perform this upload.

With the templates provided here, it’s a simple one, two, step!

  1. Download one of the (.csv formatted) templates above.
  2. Upload the template onto UpKeep

Done!

Can I use this collection even if I don’t have UpKeep?

The short answer is “yes”! We are aiming to provide as much value as possible, especially during this pandemic. You can find the PDF versions of these templates here.

Feel free to print them out and utilize them!


What if I don’t need one of the templates in the collection?

The templates in this collection are separated and categorized. Go ahead and take a look at each of the template titles individually and decide which ones are needed by your team and which ones are not!


What if I want to change or delete a task item from a template?

Once you finish uploading a template into your account, you can easily change the task item name, type, or even delete a line item all together.

It is important to note that you must make these adjustments BEFORE assigning the checklist to work orders — because you won’t be able to edit them after assigning. We have this safeguard in place for the UpKeep system to ensure that no one accidentally changes a template/checklist that is essential to a work order that already exists for your team.

To reiterate however, you cannot edit a checklist that has been previously used via the main checklist, since the system will protect the historical integrity of the work orders associated w/ that checklist

Optionally, you can make tiny edits of which task you do or do not want included when adding to a Work Order itself (this doesn’t edit the actual checklist, but is an option to allow our customers to make crucial, specific adjustments when needed).
