Message from Tla’amin Executive Council and Health Director

Warmer Weather and Covid-19

(April 12, 2021)

Today, the Tla’amin Nation is relieved to announce no new active cases of Covid 19 since our previous update. Our lab-confirmed cases remain at 5. Let’s stay the course!

Outdoor physical activity and wellness is important for everyone. As weather conditions improve, we would like to remind everyone to play safe outdoors by avoiding crowded spaces and continue to practice physical distancing (6 feet apart!).

Many of us have remained indoors over the past months, so it is important to take it slow with outdoor activities. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water as hot weather can affect everyone’s health.

Dr. Bonnie Henry reminds us, “Bending the rules only delays our ability to put the pandemic behind us, so let’s ensure we are not looking for exceptions to the orders we have in place, but rather looking to how we can help each other to stay small, stay local and stay strong in the face of COVID-19.”

Outdoor burning remains temporarily paused in the community to prevent harming those experiencing respiratory difficulty.

Executive Council and Health extend a big thank you to everyone cooperating with the curfew order (8:00 pm – 8:00 am to contain the spread of Covid-19).

Please continue to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms if you have been instructed to do so. If you, or anyone you know are experiencing Covid symptoms such as fever, cough, fatigue, muscle pain, lack of appetite, loss of sense of taste or smell – you need to be tested! You can be tested in two locations:
