Many of our Nations have restricted outside visitors to their Nations. Members of each Nation are asked to exercise self-isolation and not to travel out of their Nation for non-essential purposes. Precautions in each Nation will remain in place to ensure COVID-19 does not enter their Nation.

  • Cover your mouth if you have to cough or sneeze; sneeze into elbow or tissue but not into your bare hands, avoid rubbing your mouth and eyes.
  • Self quarantine if you think you’ve been exposed or exhibiting symptoms
  • Stay away from large gatherings, the maximum number of people recommended for gatherings is 10 people.
  • DO NOT expose our Elders or those with weakened immune systems, people with diabetes are vulnerable.
  • If you know someone that has travelled ask them to self quarantine and avoid spreading
  • International borders are shut down so we could heed this directive at the local level. Many of the Nations have began this process with their entry ways in to their Nation.
