Memo to: Resident Members, Eel Ground First Nation
Emergency Assistance for Households, March 19th, 2020
Please be advised that the Band will be assisting each of our Households later today with funds to aide them in purchasing essentials. Public Health and all levels of Government are advising everyone to STAY HOME and limit interaction to an absolute minimum i.e.: Grocery and Drug Store. The coming weeks will be critical in slowing the transmission of Covid-19 and we all need to do our part. Please read the information that was distributed by our Health Centre as it shares important “What to do info” should you get sick and need medical attention. We will provide updates as necessary and please message or call Staff if you have questions. The Household Assistance will be delivered House to House starting this afternoon. We will put them in the mail if there is no one home after a couple tries. We will use the same process for Income Assistance next Monday. Stay safe, Stay Home, we need to focus on reducing spread so the most venerable are not at risk. Wela’lin!
Chief George Ginnish for Council & Staff!
