We had 4 positive cases and 39 active cases in the Bois Forte Community on 1/13/22. I expect several positives today also.
Please get tested if you have any new symptoms, even 1, such as runny nose, scratchy/sore throat, nasal congestion, cough, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or fatigue/body aches.
Please wear your mask, especially at work and with people outside your household.
Please get vaccinated or boosted: Starting the week of January 17, 2022, if you have contact with a positive case and your COVID vaccines are not up to date you WILL BE QUARANTINED. Bois Forte will be adopting the quarantine guidelines form CDC and MDH at that time.
What that means is: If you had Pfizer or Moderna and it’s been longer than 5 months since your last shot OR you had Johnson & Johnson and it’s been longer than 2 months you are DUE NOW FOR A BOOSTER! For more information:
