The Lac La Ronge Indian Band administration office is reopen today, after being closed late last week for deep-cleaning and sanitization.
“On Monday, April 12 we were informed that there was a confirmed COVID-19 positive case in the Band Office last week,” said Gladys Christiansen, Executive Director. “The person had attended a meeting in the Band Office. Those in attendance were required to immediately get tested and to self-isolate. Today, one of those employees received a confirmed COVID-19 positive test.”
The offices were closed April 15, 16 as employees were encouraged to work from home and self-monitor for symptoms.
As of Friday, the First Nation has 17 active cases.
