The announcement from Thursday notes that the Band Council and local Emergency Measures Committee have been monitoring the situation in Prince Rupert over the last two weeks and with an increase in reports of positive cases of COVID-19, as a result the measures previously announced will remain in place.
The extension to the Lockdown will now mean that it is in effect until March 3rd, at which time conditions will be reassessed.
Lax Kw'alaams has been under the Lockdown order since the first reports of COVID on the North Coast from mid January.
You can access more details to what is involved from the Lax Kw'alaams Facebook page.
