Welcome to the fifteenth and final weekly edition of our COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples. Since the end of March, Bimaadzwin has posted stories and facts that contain basic information, the latest news, and what governments are doing to address the current pandemic. Our Bulletin will now become monthly with the next edition available in August.

In the meantime, please continue to practice social distancing. DO NOT attend crowded places without at least wearing a mask. On Canada Day, Ottawa Police had to disperse a large crowd of people gathered on a city beach. As we are seeing in the southern United States right now, there are crisis levels of COVID-19 because people did not social distance when in public.

The simplest message is: “Stay at home. Stay in your backyard.” We are all in this together. Everyone must stay informed in order stay safe. That is our central goal and commitment for this publication. Please click on the link below for this week’s presentation:

We look forward to your feedback, ideas, and shared information that we can help send across to First Nations across Turtle Island. We are working with various partners to ensure that the information that is being conveyed is support of First Nations as they activate Pandemic Plans and work toward reconstituting First Nation communities once the transmission of COVID19 is no longer a threat to human health.
