The best advice at this time, to limit the spread of COVID-19, is social distancing. That means staying home and avoiding all non-essential trips and interaction with others outside your household. This also includes guests and extended family from outside the community. For the health of the community, we need everyone’s cooperation to limit the amount of traffic coming and going from the reserve.
As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chief and Council have ordered the north entrance to Neyaashiinigmiing, on Sydney Bay Road, closed until further notice. The Coveney’s Road entrance is open, but we ask that traffic be strictly limited to residents and essential services only. Essential services include things like emergency services, delivery vehicles, communication services and home maintenance services.
We want to assure everybody that there is no cause for alarm. The community is not quarantined or locked down, at this time. The road closure is simply a measure to reduce the chance of the COVID-19 virus reaching the community. Please respect these reasonable requests to keep our whole community safe.
