December 10, 2021

As of December 8, 2021 there are 5 confirmed cases of COVID 19 in the Fort William First Nation Community. The Emergency Response Team has responded and will continue to follow up in this situation. Please keep in mind our community has many vulnerable people, including children under 2 who are not yet able to be vaccinated. In many homes there are multiple families living together that can create conditions for greater community spread of the virus.

Reminder to all FWFN Families with children ages 5-11 years old and to all Members interested in getting their COVID19 Booster Vaccine can register for the upcoming clinic. The Clinic will be held at the FWFN Community Hall on Wednesday December 15, 2021, 9:00am-4:00pm. Please contact the FWFN Health Department at (807) 622-8802 to register.

Due to the serious serge of COVID-19 cases right now within the FWFN community and district of Thunder Bay we are asking everyone to make their greatest effort toward the following:

  • Reduce your contacts
  • Avoid indoor social gatherings, like playdates, parties and sleepovers
  • Maintain a distance of 2 metres from people outside your household
  • Wear a mask, and wear it properly. Over your Mouth AND Nose
  • Clean your hands frequently
  • Avoid non-essential travel, especially to Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan, which have the highest rates of COVID-19 in the United States
  • Stay home when you feel sick and get tested if you have any symptoms of COVID-19

Please continue to stay safe. We are all in this together as a community and we will get through this as a community.
If you have any questions, please see contact information below.
