Bois Forte Public Health COVID-19 Case Announcement 1/16/22

Boozhoo All,

Between Friday, January 14 and Saturday, January 15 we had 12 new cases.  As of Sunday, January 16 we had 45 active cases.  In the last 2 weeks we’ve had 51 positive cases in the Bois Forte Community.  This is by far our biggest jump during the entire pandemic.  Our previous high was 40 cases in the entire month of September.

I’m asking everyone to please:

Get tested if you have any symptoms.

Please get vaccinated or boosted:  Starting January 18, 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:
