(FORT WILLIAM FIRST NATION, ON) – The First Nation of Fort William First Nation is set to lock down their community in the face of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 public health crisis.
The virus is spreading rapidly throughout the country, at an alarming rate. Numerous other First Nation communities have already locked down, in the best interests of their residents.
Residents and people who work or operate businesses in the community will be allowed access. Chief Peter Collins says that he and his team are working on a system to identify these people quickly.
Chief Peter Collins is doing the right thing, locking down communities before it’s too late. The district of Thunder Bay is lagging behind in testing for the virus. The last number released by the health unit pegged tests administered at below 100.
Go and get gas today, before they lock out non-residents.
