Information that remains the same: DOC will be distributing a total of $1,600,000.00 in the form of grants to businesses to be used in responding to the negative economic impacts caused by COVID.

In order to keep within our current COVID Phase 2.5, appointments are required.

Thanks, the Safety & Emergency Management department

When we think of February we first think of Valentine’s Day. The commercialization of the holiday with chocolates, candy hearts, and little stuffed bears with a heart that says, “I Love You!” has cemented February as the Month of Love.
In the healthcare world, February is recognized as American Heart Month. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in Native Americans. There are several factors to take into consideration when we talk about what causes heart disease. The February issue of Mnozhiyaadaa discusses some of the complexities of heart disease.


Due to the continued COVID-19 case level in our area, Phase 2.5 (See Attached) and all the current safety precautions that have been put in place has been extended to Saturday, February 26th, 2022.

Aanii LTBB Citizens,

Great news!!! The State of Michigan distributed 10 million free KN95 masks to help protect residents from COVID-19. Health experts suggest stepping up protection against the highly contagious omicron variant with stronger masks such as N95s or KN95s. These masks are in addition to 400 million free N95 masks the federal government is distributing to pharmacies and community health centers across the country.
