COMMUNITY NOTICE – JULY 16, 2020

I would like to take this opportunity to update you on Council’s consideration of Phase Two. Loomex had proposed the resumption plan and moving our community into Phase Two on either July 3rd, 2020, July 17th, 2020 or July 24th, 2020. The details of Phase Two are laid out in attached plan and were discussed during the community consultation which took place from June 12th to 17th on the gradual phased approach to community resumption. Prior to making the decision to begin Phase Two, Council is looking at the current measures in place and the current COVID-19 cases, information, and the guidance of public health officials. We would like to invite any comments on Phase Two be shared with Kayla Stephenson at Loomex Group at kstephenson@loomex.ca, or directly with any member of Chief and Council.

The following changes will occur should we move into Phase Two of community resumption.

1)The checkpoint will be taken down. Please note that Curve Lake First Nation continues to be in a “State of Emergency” and the April 3rd “Order” is still in effect.

2)The government buildings will remain closed as aligned with the Motion of Council to shut down, effective right now until August 21, 2020 at 4:30 pm.

3)The daycare and school remain closed until Council and Administration deem it safe to re-open.

4)Any public spaces in Curve Lake would be reserved exclusively for the use of CurveLake Residents and their immediate family.

You should continue to:

•Have only the people you live with inside your home

•Limit gatherings of people, keeping preventive measures in place

•Leave two meters (6 feet) between yourself and the next person

•Frequently wash hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer

•Cough or sneeze into your sleeve

•Avoid contact with people who are sick

•Avoid touching your face

•We recommend wearing a face mask in public, especially at Curve Lake First Nation place of businesses

Reminder: Home is the safest place. Thank you to everyone who is consistently doing their part to keep the community safe.
