Hello Cortes friends, I just want to give a brief update of where Klahoose is, first of all thank you for everyone’s support, encouragement, kind words and deeds, it really touches and helps us. As of today we are still only one confirmed case.
We are working hard on keeping our members from not leaving the reserve. We don’t need this virus to be moving around anywhere. Our check point team at the top of Tork Rd needs to be respected on both sides of the barrier, and we appreciate everyone’s understand regarding this. We do have some mild sickness, with Covid19 symptoms presenting. Several people have been tested. They are self isolating. We are waiting for the results. The storm did not help delaying our ability to get the swabs off the island. We should know by Monday whether we have more confirmed cases. We will continued to announce the number of confirmed Covid19 cases as we get the results back. We hope that more “positive” cases are not going to happen but we are getting ourselves prepared. Officially we have only one confirmed case and the contact tracing is STILL ongoing. This is why it is VERY IMPORTANT for everyone to follow the provincial guidelines and stay home, stay in your household bubble, wash your hands and mask up if you do leave your home. We are doing our due diligence, following the guidelines from various government agencies, as well as advice from our sister nation Tla’amin’s Covid19 emergency response team. We do all live on this island together and I very much appreciate the whole community rising to this occasion and doing your part of shutting down Covid. On another note, I’m getting a lot of people asking how they can actually help, right now bringing a couple armloads of DRY firewood to keep our frontline workers warm at the check point is a fantastic contribution to our efforts here. Once again I raise my hands to you all. Emote.
