Welcome to the edition Number 9 of our weekly COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples. 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.

Provinces are beginning to ease restrictions and allow businesses to re-open. If you are able to go shopping, please maintain at least six feet distance from other people and wear a mask. This week, the federal government finally confirmed that you should wear a mask when out in public. 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 to stay safe. That is our central goal and commitment to 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 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,
