The notice shared on the First Nations website says residents should put the nature of the question or concern in the subject line so that the email can be directed to the correct person.
The First Nation is also reminding residents that if you have mild symptoms, you need to self-isolate and report this to your health staff. If you live with others, you must keep yourself contained in one room.
