EGFN Community Covid-19 Update Memo April 5, 2020 & Band Council Resolution

Please see the PDF link for full Document regarding Eel Ground First Nation Community Update Memo, April 5th, 2020. It also includes on pages 3 and 4 the Band Council Resolution made for the Health and Safety of Eel Ground First Nation Members and permanent residents.

The memo speaks to the need to aggressively continue to apply Stay at Home and Physical Distancing Directives as the next 3-4 weeks are critical in NB to limit the rate of increase and demand on the Health Care System. A couple other key messages are:

1) the Curfew to restrict community access to non residents not providing essential services,

2) that Income Assistance and other aide have been mailed out and that process will continue to take place for the foreseeable future and

3) it is being recommended that those that have to go out use a face covering and that we assume we all could be carriers with out knowing.
