The MCFN Chief and Council are continuing to actively take precautions and actions to address the potential impacts of COVID-19 within our Nation.

Thankfully, the MCFN Community continues to have no active cases of COVID-19. We wish to say chi-miigwech to everyone for their diligence in keeping our community free of the virus.

As the COVID-19 numbers across the Province rise, it is important to remember that we all play a role in keeping our Community free of the virus.

Public Gatherings

To ensure that our Community stays safe, Chief and Council are asking that people in our community limit their gatherings to 10 people indoor and 25 people outdoors.

Please remember that social distancing rules must be followed during all gatherings. We still must continue to stay 2 meters away from each other. If staying 2 meters apart is not possible, you need to wear a mask to help protect yourself and others. Remember to wash or sanitize your hand frequently.

It is important that we remain in our social bubbles as limiting contact with others is how we contribute to reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Organizational Operations

The MCFN organization reopened to the community on September 8th. As a gradual reopening, limited number of services will be offered during this time. Those needing to attend any administration building will need to make an appointment. All program participants must register to participate. Please note, to ensure safety, some programs and services will be modified to permit social distancing.

All visitors will be required to wear a mask upon entry to any building and will be go through a screening process before proceeding to their appointment. In addition, they will need to provide their name and number in the event contract tracing is required in the workplace. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping our community and staff safe.

Personal Precautions

The MCFN Chief and Council would like to remind everyone how important it is to take personal precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. These include:

  • Regular hand washing with soap and warm water or an alcohol-based hand cleanser.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Maintain social distancing and ensure you practice good respiratory hygiene. Cover your cough or sneeze with your bent elbow or tissue, then dispose of the tissue immediately.
  • Be cognizant of travel advisories and limit your exposure to large gatherings.
  • If you travel outside of Canada, it is important to self-isolate upon re-entry to the country.
  • If you feel ill, stay home. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and follow their instructions.
