(April 20, 2021)

Tla’amin Nation reports that the total remains at one (1) active COVID-19 case in community with several members continuing to isolate. Following restrictions regarding limited gatherings, wearing a mask, and social distancing is working. Please be kind to one another and remain vigilant as we continue to move forward and protect our nation from this third wave.

Provincial Health Orders have now been extended until May 25th. As a self-governing nation, Executive Council issued additional safety directives to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We appreciate your continued efforts.

Gentle Reminders of Tla’amin Nation leadership directives:
