To:                              MKO Chiefs

From:                         MKO Grand Chief Garrison Settee

Date:                          April 30, 2020

Subject:                    Pandemic Plan in containing COVID-19 virus

I am hearing reports of people travelling to and from communities and towns within the MKO territory. We should be mindful that there have been cases of the COVID-19 virus in Flin Flon, Manitoba and in nearby communities in Saskatchewan.

On April 17, 2020, the province had announced a public health order to prohibit non-essential travel north of 53rd parallel. I am reminding everyone that these precautions should be taken seriously if we are to help the efforts in preventing the COVID-19 virus from moving into our communities and territory. We are living in unprecedented times and must take extraordinary measures to protect our citizens.

If you have any questions, please contact my assistant Clyde Flett by phone at (204) 390-2702 or email him at
