COVID-19 Public Health Notification – COVID-19 Cases in First Nation Communities

https://fb.watch/adDeEf1KBa/

December 29, 2021

SLFNHA COVID Update with Dr. Lloyd Douglas:

Update on new COVID cases in Bearskin Lake, Poplar Hill, Sandy Lake, Eagle Lake, and Lac Seul.

We must continue to remain vigilant in our efforts to keep the virus out of the communities. Two key strategies include: getting the vaccine, whether it’s your first, second, or third dose, and adhering to all public health measures. We continue to emphasize the importance of choosing the COVID-19 vaccine.

We would like to remind communities that even those who have had the COVID vaccine still could get the virus, but evidence suggests they experience less severe illness. 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.

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.
