(NORTHERN ONTARIO) – At least three First Nation communities have taken proactive steps to protect their residents.
Shoal Lake, Long Lake #58 and Pic Mobert have completely shut down their land to any non-members for now.
The current public health crisis sparked by the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 is the driving factor that supports the decision made by these First Nation communities.
A study says that of all the coronavirus victims, 86% of them have went undetected.
People are dying in large numbers around the world everyday due to the outbreak. Some people in China are now finding themselves reinfected after already getting over the virus. Health Officials are watching this “second wave” closely.
Good work to all Chief and Council involved in the three First Nations that shut down their borders.
