Message from Tla’amin Executive Council and Health Director

Governance House and Ahms Tah Ow Prepare to Open for General Public

(April 14, 2021)

The Tla’amin Nation reports no new active cases of Covid 19 in the past five days. Our lab-confirmed cases remain at 5.

While the Tla’amin Nation continues to trend in a good direction our Governance House has softly re-opened for staff only. Executive Council requested that a low number of staff return to carry out essential services, with the support of the front desk. The Governance House safety plan for Covid-19 will be followed. The office will remain closed to the general public until further notice.

Ahms Tah Ow will re-open tomorrow (Thursday, April 15th). Sign-in sheets, wearing masks, physical distancing and safety protocols will continue to be followed.

The Governance House, Ahms Tah Ow and Tla’amin Health are cleaned and sanitized as per their respective Covid Safety Plans. Tla’amin Health continues to deliver essential services but the Health building is also closed to the general public until further notice.

The curfew is still in effect from 9:00 pm – 6:00 am. Only people that need to go to work or obtain medical attention or supplies will be permitted to leave their property during these hours. The community remains closed to visitors, with the exception of couriers, mail, designated contactors for home repairs, and food deliveries from grocery stores or restaurants.

Cooperating with the Provincial Health Orders to stop the spread of Covid-19 has resulted in a decrease of positive cases in the past 24 hours. Please be kind to one another, remain calm and be supportive. Executive Council and Health recognizes all our community’s efforts this past week.

Please continue to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms if you have been instructed to do so. If you, or anyone you know, is 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!
