Week Seven: COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples

Isadore Day CEO, Bimaadzwin

Welcome to the edition Number 7 of our weekly COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples, now entering our third month of publication. Every week, Bimaadzwin will post information that contains basic information, the latest news, and what governments are doing to address the current pandemic.

With the arrival of warmer weather, all of us, especially children, want to go outdoors to walk, exercise and play. As always, the experts are telling us to enjoy the fresh but please maintain social distancing and wear a mask if you are close to others, especially when shopping.  Please respect the lock-down orders in your communities. If you do go to a local town for shopping, this is why you must wear a mask and wash your hands. Do not bring the COVID-19 virus into your community.

The simplest message is: “Stay at home.” We are all in this together. Everyone must stay informed in order to stay safe. That is our central goal and commitment to this publication.

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 the 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 hpelky@bimaadzwin.ca / 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,

Isadore Day, Wiindawtegowinini
