Re: COVID19 Weekly Publication – Issue #013
Welcome to the thirteenth edition of our weekly COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples. Every week, Bimaadzwin will post stories and facts that contain basic information, the latest news, and what governments are doing to address the current pandemic.
It is hard to believe that this Sunday is already National Indigenous Day – the Summer Solstice—and Father’s Day. Whatever you are celebrating this weekend, please remember we are still in a middle of a pandemic. If you are outside with people who are not household family members, please wear a mask and maintain at least six feet distance. As always, please obey the lock-down orders in your communities.
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.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org / 1-705-987-2505. Working together, we can, and will make it through this and be stronger as Indigenous People, families, communities, and nations.
In Health, Healing and Nationhood,
Isadore Day, Wiindawtegowinini
