We had 12 cases case’s yesterday. 9 in Nett and 3 in Vermilion. We currently have 23 active cases on the Reservation. This is a HUGE jump. We had 13 case in the entire month of December. Omicron is obviously here, we can not test for it, but we can see by the jump in cases that it has reached us. The entire state has increased, they currently have the highest daily case counts we’ve seen in the entire pandemic. This is depressing news, since we are almost 2 full years into this.
The good news is that the vaccine seems to be helping decrease how sick people are, which decreases the number of people who will need to be hospitalized and in the ICU. Yes, you can still get sick but you won’t be as sick.
What can you do to keep your coworkers, community and yourself safe?
Miigwech everyone for all of your hard work. It is much appreciated.
