Peguis and Fisher River First Nations were among earliest First Nations to see COVID-19 in Manitoba
Chiefs of some of the First Nations in Manitoba that were among the earliest to see cases of COVID-19 say collaboration is key in the face of rising cases, as the communities implement stricter measures to curb spread and seek safe ways to boost spirits.
“Jointly, the communities have a good discussion on how we can work together to limit the spread of COVID in our communities,” said Chief David Crate of Fisher River Cree Nation, about 175 kilometres north of Winnipeg, between nearby Peguis and Kinonjeoshtegon First Nations.
“The end goal, of course, is to try and stop the spread of COVID [within] our communities.”
