Re: COVID19 Weekly Publication – Issue #008
Welcome to the edition Number 8 of our weekly COVID-19 Bulletin for First Nations and Indigenous peoples, now entering our third month of publication. Every week, Bimaadzwin will post information that contains basic information, the latest news, and what governments are doing to address the current pandemic.
The May long weekend is here and a lot of us are used to traveling and visiting friends, especially if they have a boat dock, cottage or campsite. However, there are restrictions in place so please check to see if your provincial parks are open. National parks are still closed until June 1st. Please respect 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,
