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

At this time, we continue to have no active cases of COVID-19 in the community. We must say chi-miigwech to everyone for being diligent and taking the necessary precautions to ensure COVID-19 exposure is reduced.

MCFN Voluntary Isolation

Miigwech to everyone for doing their part during the past 3 weeks. We are confident that this approach helped to keep MCFN numbers low. As we resume our new normal, I encourage everyone to continue following public health recommendations.

MCFN Organizational Operations

Please note, we will be resuming our current day to day operations as of November 9th, 2020, with COVID precautions in place. Please remember that an appointment is needed prior to attending any office in person. Further, please be aware that prior to entry, all visitors will be subject to a two-staged screening process, which includes a temperature check.

Please note, the safety and well-being of our staff, our community and our members is paramount. We will be maintaining entry logs for each workplace, in the event contact tracing becomes necessary. We ask that everyone cooperate with these requirements by readily providing your name and contact number.

In the event there is an increased risk of exposure to a confirmed or probable case in the organization, an environmental clean will be performed by an outside consultant. If a workplace needs to be closed to ensure the safety of everyone, this will be done.

Precautions

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

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • 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. 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.

Public Health Information

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please contact the following Public Health Offices and follow their instructions:

  • Haldimand Norfolk Public Health – 519-426-6170, ext. 9999
  • Six Nations Public Health – 519-445-2672
  • Brant County Public Health – 519-751-5818 or via email at covid.assessment@bchsys.org
  • Outside of regular business hours, you can contact Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000

Please note, the MCFN Community Health Office is not a Public Health Office, although it does assist with contact tracing and wellness checks for those who reside on MCFN.

We cannot stress enough, how important it is to follow the Public Health guidelines. We learned during the first wave, that we can effectively curve the spread of COVID-19 when we work together.  Let’s keep our community safe.

The MCFN Chief and Council are responsible for making decisions that impact the Membership. If you have any concerns, please contact any member of the table.
