Re: COVID19 Weekly Publication – Issue #011
Welcome to the eleventh edition of our weekly COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples – now in our fourth month of publication! Every week, Bimaadzwin will post stories and facts that contain basic information, the latest news, and what governments are doing to address the current pandemic.
The days are getting longer, and summer is just around the corner. The water may still be a little cold for swimming, but you should always be vigilant about protection against the pandemic. If you are outside with people who are not household family members, please wear a mask and maintain at least six feet distance. As always, please respect the lock-down orders in your communities.
The simplest message is: “Stay at home. Stay in your backyard.” We are all in this together. Everyone must stay informed in order stay safe. That is our central goal and commitment for this publication. Please click on the link below for this week’s presentation:
We look forward to your feedback, ideas, and shared information that we can help send across to First Nations across Turtle Island. We are working with various partners to ensure that the information that is being conveyed is support of First Nations as they activate Pandemic Plans and work toward reconstituting First Nation communities once the transmission of COVID19 is no longer a threat to human health.
Please contact us at [email protected] / 1-705-987-2505. Working together, we can, and will make it through this and be stronger as Indigenous People, families, communities, and nations.
In Health, Healing and Nationhood,
