In response to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 at a local school, Fort William First Nation is once again urging members to use.“COVID-19 COLOUR CODED FLAG SYSTEM”.

The system is an emergency measure, for those who are sick or self-isolating to indicate that help is needed.. It isn’t intended to replace communication with essential service providers, but to serve as a backup measure. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to ensure that they have the essential items that they need in their homes such as food, medications etc.

In the event that you or someone in your home has tested positive for COVID-19 or has been identified by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is in self-isolation, please ensure that the color-coded flag is placed in a spot that is visible from the road or driveway, such as a living room window.

For more information on this system please contact the FWFN Health Department at 807-622-8802, or the On-Call 24-hour Emergency Response line at 807-472-7701.
