National Nursing Week – May 10 to 16, 2021

SLFNHA is pleased to recognize National Nursing Week,

May 10 – 16, 2021.
The theme this year is #WeAnswerTheCall and was developed by Canadian Nurses Association to showcase the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s healthcare journey. The pandemic brought to light the courage and commitment that nurses work under every day and showed the essential role of nurses in communities.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all Nursing staff for their continuous effort and dedication to improving the health of clients and the communities we serve. We are profoundly grateful to have such a dedicated team of skilled professionals to Answer The Call helping to keep us all safe.

SLFNHA COVID-19 Update: Cases in Kasabonika Lake FN – April 8, 2021

The Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority (SLFNHA) has been notified that there are an additional two cases of COVID in Kasabonika Lake First Nation. The individuals are isolating in the community at this time. This brings the community case count to six (6) active cases at this time.

Case and contact management has started and the SLFNHA Preventing Infectious Diseases (PID) team will continue to monitor the situation and support the community. We are aware that viral activity has been on the rise in the region and we must continue to remain vigilant in our efforts to keep the virus out of the communities.
Many people in the region have made the choice to get the COVID-19 vaccine. We have still not yet reached herd immunity and we must continue to work together as a community to protect each other. Operation Remote Immunity ends this week. Plans are underway so that vaccines will be available regularly in communities for people who decide to get it. We continue to emphasize the importance of choosing the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine will: protect you, protect your loved ones, slow the spread of the virus, and help end the pandemic.
Even those who have had the COVID vaccine still could get the virus. It is strongly recommended that all individuals continue to follow all public health measures. This includes those who have taken the first shot or who have been fully vaccinated. Important public health measures include:
  •  physical distancing
  • hand washing
  • wearing masks in public where physical distancing cannot be maintained
  • avoiding unnecessary travel, and
  • keeping to a single social bubble

We also recommend that travelers self-isolate and receive a test upon return and 5- 7 days later. We emphasize the importance of avoiding the 3 Cs: close contact, crowds, and closed spaces.
If you have any community member with symptoms that could be caused by COVID-19, please contact your nursing station to be assessed as soon as possible.
