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.

We continue to see an uptick in COVID-19 cases in the tribal community and the community at large.  In order to provide the safest workplace environment possible while also providing services to our community we are going to scale back our “in-person” staffing in the buildings for the next two weeks.  We are also hoping the scale back will help with decreasing the chances of spreading the virus among staff and the community after our Thanksgiving holiday gatherings.  We will continue to stay in Phase 2.5 of the Reopening Plan.

Aanii Odawak, Anishinaabek! COVID-19 booster vaccines have been available now for the past 2 weeks for adults ages 18 years and older. What an opportunity for our people to keep us all safe from COVID-19. Our LTBB Odawa Health Department is prioritizing booster shots for our elders, those with health conditions that place them at higher risks, and front line workers first.  Please be patient as we work through these lists.
