The Tahltan Nation COVID-19 Emergency Management Team (TNCEMT) met today and would like to inform the Tahltan Nation that two individuals (one adult and one child) have tested positive for COVID-19 in Dease Lake.
As a result, and according to our policy, effective immediately all three communities are now in lockdown and will remain in lockdown until contact tracing is completed and Tahltan leadership lifts the lockdown order.
It is important we remain calm, united and understand that TNCEMT will be adapting to our circumstances with our number one priority being: keeping our people safe.
It is understood that the two individuals who tested positive are okay and are self monitoring. Currently our thoughts and prayers go to the family, and the Tahltan Nation stands ready to support you.
The TNCEMT would like to remind everyone to remain diligent and ensure only verifiable information is shared. We all understand the damage that false information can have.
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY THE FOLLOWING MEASURES ARE NOW IN PLACE IN TAHLTAN TERRITORY:
What if I live in Territory but I am currently outside. Is it safe to return?
If you live in Territory, you may return as long as you follow all measures above.
What if I am at Fish Camp, or I left and I want to return to Fish Camp?
Please contact the local EMC for further instructions.
What if I am Tahltan or non-Tahltan and want to come visit the Territory?
At this time, everyone is asked to assist the Tahltan Nation in our efforts to stay at home and to not travel to Tahltan Territory.
