LDF TRIBAL INCIDENT COMMAND /EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT Update   04/27/2020   2:00 P.M.

 6 FT DISTANCING RULE AT LDF COUNTRY MARKET

PLEASE FOLLOW THE 6FT DISTANCING RULE AT THE MARKET & GAS STATION.  THIS RULE IS FOR YOUR HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF THE STAFF.  

 

What the community should know “Guidelines”.

 

TRAVELING:

If COVID-19 is spreading at your destination, but not where you live, you may be more likely to get infected if you travel there than if you stayed home.

LDF Tribe issued a “Shelter at Home” order Resolution 103(20) curfew from 10pm – 6AM.

Evaluate your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses in crowded settings, particularly closed-in settings with little air circulation.

  • Refrain from conferences, public events, religious gatherings, movie theatres, shopping malls, and public transportation.
  • Limit the amount of time you spend making essential trips to the grocery store or to pick up medications. Make essential trips no more than once a week. –WIDHS
  • Limit your physical interactions to the same people during this time. Less than five people totals will help us stop the virus from spreading. -WIDHS

CDC recommends that travelers at high risk for COVID-19 complications avoid all cruise travel and nonessential air travel.

You may not realize you are infection if your symptoms are mild or you don’t have a fever.

 

If you have close contact with someone with COVID-19 during travel, you may be asked to stay home to self-monitor and avoid contact with others for up to 14 days after travel.

 

If you travel, be sure to take steps to help prevent getting and spreading COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases during travel.

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is spread from person to person.

 

Clean hands often

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Practice social distances-Keep at least 6 feet apart from others and avoid direct physical contact.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

 

2nd Homeowners and Seasonal Travelers coming to Lac du Flambeau-Add language for checking in upon coming to Lac du Flambeau to the police or town.

The Town of Lac du Flambeau and the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians

Travel between private homes within the state, including seasonal homes or rental cabins, is strongly discouraged. This is for your safety and wellbeing as well as the safety of our rural counties and tribal communities. Non-essential travel outside your current community may spread COVID-19 to areas with very limited health care infrastructure.

Several counties in Wisconsin have issued travel advisories for seasonal and second homeowners. If you choose to travel to a second home in Wisconsin, you should be prepared to immediately self-quarantine for 14 days. You should bring your own groceries and essentials, as self-quarantine does not permit shopping at local stores for supplies.

Travel Caution- 14-day Quarantine

We recommend limiting travel as much as possible

We need the community members to help relay the message to the people you know that have or continue to travel from areas of concern to voluntary 14-day self-quarantine guidelines.

 

Social Distancing~~~~ 6ft a part ~~~ < than 10 people = Slows the Spread of Covid-19.

This means no big family gatherings, feasts, parties, cookouts or get togethers.  This is essential to minimize the potential to spread the virus to your loved ones!!
