Siksikawa, we are at the critical stage of the COVID-19 pandemic. We need physical distancing to protect our vulnerable Nation members.
Now is not the time for physical socializing and house parties. Because once the party stops and you have to go home, you could potentially infect your kids, your grandparents and any sick relatives!
There are approximately 600 vulnerable individuals in Siksika. If we do not follow self-isolation and physical distancing measures, then close to 500 vulnerable Siksikawa may be infected, many of whom will become seriously ill and need to be hospitalized. If our physical distancing is 50% effective, this number will drop to 50!
Thank you to Siksika SN7 for this powerful message.
