In their July 15th announcement the CHN notes that all non-residential and non-essential travel is still not permitted.
The Pandemic Response advisory notes that a number of factors were considered as they extended the State of Emergency: with current global trends, the status of the Canada/US border and availability of information sharing, screening, rapid testing and safe contact tracing among their concerns.
We are continuing with our risk assessment, information gathering, and consultation period to determine how and when the Haida Nation will permit non-resident travel.
This process is transparent and applies to all equally throughout the Islands.
The Council of Haida Nation further outlines that they will issue a formal statement on the next phase of their COVID-19 response following their review, though they do not provide a timeline towards when that is planned.
You can review the full statement from the CHN here.
Those looking for more information on the CHN's plans and updates can find further background from the Council of Haida nation website and Facebook page.
