Tribal Chief of Carrier Sekani Tribal Council is issuing the following as our immediate response measures to COVID-19 to protect our staff, contractors and member nations:
Business Travel and Meeting Prohibitions and Restrictions
- A ban is now in effect on all non-essential business travel where the travel by air or rail (this does not include travel to your home office), regardless of whether your travel destination is international (outside of Canada) or domestic, but does not affect your commute to your home office. If you have essential business travel booked, this must be approved before it is undertaken. Please direct approval requests with specific details of your planned essential business travel to Mina Holmes or John Lewis.
- All in person meetings in the workplace with 15 people or more are now prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, meetings that we may host, external events that our member nations may wish to host in our premises, and internal meetings and gatherings. We encourage you to use video or audioconferencing facilities where appropriate.
- Staff and contractors are now prohibited from attending any external business events, conferences or other large gatherings when on CSTC business and where 15 or more people are in attendance, regardless of location.
CSTC would like to assure you that everyone’s collective health remains our top priority, as we continue to refine best practices in our office. It is important to utilize the highest standard in infection control procedures.
So it is most important that we all do our part to help slow the spread of this virus. By educating ourselves with the latest scientifically driven information along with advised protocol, we can make a difference.
Please take the time to become informed daily through reliable links like the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/coronavirus-(novel) and if, “Anyone concerned that they may have been exposed to, or are experiencing symptoms of the novel coronavirus, should contact their primary care provider, local public health office, or call 8-1-1.”
