There are currently no more confirmed COVID cases in community. 

The three previous confirmed cases of COVID, end their isolation as of midnight tonight, all three are doing well. 

EMC has decided to reopen the School, Brighter Futures and Headstart. 

The Band office will remain open for service, please have your vaccine card available, if you need service at the band office. 

Maintenance and the Health Center will continue all duties. 

The Rec Center is reopening for all residents

The COVID concerns were relayed earlier this month and saw the community reducing services and the potential for contact during the period of note.

The advisory of Monday has generated some conversation in the community over the number of residents who had contracted COVID, with the original notes at the time having observed of only one, since updated to three as part of the most recent correspondence.
