IMPORTANT COMMUNITY NOTICE
As many of you know, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the coronavirus COVID-19 to be a pandemic. We want to assure our community members that Chief and Council have been meeting to discuss and monitor the situation.
Using the Emergency Response Group (ERG) and our Incident Management System (IMS) training, Council along with departmental staff have had meetings this past week to review and update our pandemic plan.
The Council has instituted a travel ban for any and all work-related travel. Although we cannot restrict our community members from travelling, we urge our community members to reconsider any travel plans they may take in the next few weeks. Should you travel outside the region into known “hot” zones, we ask our members to be aware of current public health measures and infection prevention and control measures.
We are also asking that all those travelling self-identify when and where they are travelling to with either the FMH Health Centre (582-3512) or Kejick Bay Health Centre (582-9821). The FMH and KB Health Centres will remain open during the March Break.
We want to assure community members that we will continue to monitor the situation very closely and we are in contact with Menoyawin Health Centre and Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority throughout this pandemic and will pass along information as it becomes available.
