Dear Sagamok Community,

COVID-19 continues to be present in the Sagamok community. 

With caution, in mid-January we happily reported zero active cases of COVID-19 in the Sagamok community.  This came after two months of managing the situation, bringing our teams together to contain the spread of the virus and support individuals and families as they safely recovered. 

Being able to report zero cases reflected on the outcomes of the efforts of our families and businesses in keeping us all safe. 

We have since seen community case numbers on the rise again. 

We remind community members that while COVID-19 remains a real pandemic threat, we all remain our community’s best defense against the spread of the virus in our community.  

We ask that you not let your guard down and continue to diligently practice what you know to protect yourself from COVID-19, including getting fully vaccinated, being mindful of your physical health and staying home and getting tested if you are not feeling well.

The importance of getting tested and reporting positive results to our Rapid Antigen Test Coordinator (Community Health Teams) must be underscored as it allows our community response teams to contain the further spread of the virus into our community and support our families in recovering safely.

It also remains important to keep following public health recommendations of washing our hands often, staying within our family bubbles, maintaining physical distance (6 feet)from others outside our bubbles, and wearing masks.  These actions remain the best tools we have to keep us all safe.  With them, we will again be able to enjoy a COVID-free community into our future. 

Miigwech.  Be well, safe and caring.
