Chief & Council has been meeting regularly over the past week and continues to stay on top of the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and has been consulting with the Community Pandemic Emergency Operations Team.
Chief & Council continue to strongly recommend the following as reminders to you and your family:
Do not travel for any reason at this time other than for family emergencies.
Do not gather in large groups, including family gatherings in homes.
Do not cough or sneeze into your hands but instead use a Kleenex or into your sleeve.
Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds using hot water and soap or use hand sanitizer. Please ensure children in your home are doing so as well.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched items such as doorknobs, tables, toys, remote controls and cellphones.
Practice social distancing when out in the community such as when out buying groceries. Try to keep at least 6 ft. between yourself and other people.
If you are returning to Moose Factory from travel after March Break or other reasons, please self-isolate in your home for 14 days.
If you have questions or feel that you or someone you know is showing symptoms of the virus, please call the Moose Factory Health Centre at 705-658-4220 and ask to speak to one of the nurses: Rita Lazarus, Cheryl Moore, or Christina Linklater.
Telehealth Ontario is another good source for accurate information about COVID-19. You can speak to a nurse there by calling their toll-free number 24/7 at 1-866-797-0000.
Please continue to take care of yourself and take care of each other.
