EFN has nearly 1600 members living on-reserve and another 1500 off-reserve. Our approach will be to focus on prevention while preparing the community as much as possible for any transmission of COVID-19. To our off-reserve family\, we understand that there is strong likelihood of exposure in the Thunder Bay and surrounding areas and we will focus the majority of our resources in that region. \nWe have been organizing our response to requests for assistance so that individual Council members and EFN program staff are not overwhelmed and all cases are tracked and addressed to the best of our ability. Frequent updates will be provided via the Eabametoong First Nation – Community Information Page on Facebook. \nEFN has hired the following coordinators to assist with our COVID-19 response plan: \nOn-reserve – Ralph Shawinimash \nAvailable @ Band Office (807) 242-7221 \nOff-reserve – Ron Missewace and Sid Okeese \nAvailable @ Off Reserve Support number (807) 709-9757 \nMore information will be forthcoming as the situation changes\, and we will reassess our approach every 10 days. Remember that we all have the responsibility to practice social distancing\, wash your hands frequently\, sanitize points of contact\, and regularly clean the spaces in your house. \nIF YOU NEED HELP ON-RESERVE CLICK HERE\nFor urgent medical support\, please contact the clinic: (807) 242-1151 \nIF YOU NEED HELP OFF-RESERVE CLICK HERE\nWe have also set up a support line for EFN off-reserve members\, which will be answered Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm: (807) 709-9757 \nFor medical support\, use the following official guidelines: \nThose who have traveled outside of Canada or believe they have come into contact with\, or have symptoms of COVID-19\, are to self-isolate and call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000\, or the TBDHU at (807) 625-5900 or 1-888-294-6630 for instruction. \nIF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER CLICK HERE\nCOVID-19 INFORMATION\nThere is a lot of information\, including questionable content\, circulating online.
