I received the call today that no chief wants to hear that one of our elders here at Klahoose tested positive for COVID-19. We have a COVID team in place that is already working on our response to this. We are asking all reserve residents to stay at home “shelter in place” especially as contact tracing is still happening. No visiting households. No off reserve visitors. We are asking everyone to wear masks if having to leave the home. Food and supplies are being delivered to each household. We will be having a security team at the entrance to Tork Rd that monitors traffic at Klahoose which should be limited to only emergency and essential trips on and off reserve at this time. We are staying calm, supporting each other and following the guidelines. We are letting the wider island community know our situation to get ahead of the gossip and we will keep people updated as this unfolds. With everybody’s help, working together, we will get through this. We are praying for everyone’s protection and healing. Thank you. Emote.
