“Possible” COVID-19 Exposure

LSFN Chief and Council, along with SLFNHA are monitoring a possible COVID-19 exposure case within the community. At this time, test results and contact tracing are under way, but the official status of these results have not been confirmed. As of right now, we have no confirmed positive cases within the communities of Lac Seul. The communities will remain under community code yellow. If you are feeling unwell it is recommended you get tested right away, Kejick Bay clinic will remain open Thursday and Friday for COVID-19 testing, please call ahead 582-9812.

Chief and Council are announcing that, until further notice, all offices in the community will be closed with staff working from home. Elementary schools will continue through virtual learning and high school students will be permitted to attend their regular scheduled examinations. Essential services and emergencies will be responded to.

In an effort to further limit the possible spread of COVID-19 within the community, LSFN Chief and Council along with SLFNHA are strongly advising everyone to follow the current provincial stay-at-home order in effect. Community members should only be leaving their homes for essential services and needs. Furthermore, provincial restrictions prohibit individuals from visiting other households, including close relatives like grandparents, sisters, brothers, etc. This includes having individuals into your home for any and all purposes, including house parties. Lac Seul Police Service has been instructed by Chief and Council to strongly enforce the provincial restrictions within the communities.

We understand the current pandemic can result in a high level of anxiety and stress for many families and would like to remind community members that mental health service providers will be available at the Prevention Program. Outdoor activities with precautionary measures are encouraged to promote physical and mental wellbeing (walking/hiking, hunting, bike rides, cultural activities, etc.). Outdoor gatherings are limited to 5 people.

Please stay home and stay safe.
