Message from Dr. Animikwam

Aanii Kina Gwaya,

As we approach the holiday season and gather with our families, the LTBB Odawa Health Clinic would like to encourage everyone to gather as safely as possible, given the rise in COVID-19 cases in Northern Michigan and our Tribe. Vaccinations are our number one tool to help fight this virus and to protect ourselves, our families, and our Odawa Tribe. This is followed by layered prevention. It is encouraged that we practice the Nswi Ws: Wear a mask, even indoors with family gathering, Wash hands before and after eating, and Watch our distance. If anyone is sick, please stay home to rest and heal, and see if a family member can bring you a plate of food. Consider Zoom/Facetime as a means to meet in a safe way.

G’chimiigwetchiwinim  kina gwaya for your help with this. We will get ahead of this pandemic some day and the only way we can do it, is through working together. Maamwi gda’mashkozimi, lets gather for strength. Nengajigwa, take care!

Dr Animikwam
