To Tla’amin residents: 08 Sep, 2020

Unfortunately, we have several confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the community.

Attached is very important and useful information about Covid-19, as well as the “pathway” to follow if you are concerned that you may have become infected. The pathway was jointly developed by FNHA and VCH specifically for in-community First Nations cases.

Tla’amin is in the process of declaring a Local State of Emergency (Executive Order No: TNO-EC 31/2020 dated 08 Sep, 2020), which will give us better ability to keep the community safe. More information on
that will be coming very soon.

We want you to know that we are working with the Provincial health authorities and FNHA to ensure that we take all possible measures to protect you and to contain the spread of the virus. We also want to thank you for the good work you are doing to keep yourself, your family and the community safe.

You are urged not to judge anyone who gets infected by this virus. It is likely not their fault – anyone can catch it. We cannot control gossip, but we should all do our best to not react or respond to it.Please encourage others not to react or respond also. The administration, health and CDRC buildings are closed until further notice.

As more information is available it will be provided to you as quickly as possible.

Thank you.
