COVID-19 Update – Special Reminder: (State of Emergency Still in Effect on Blood Reserve)

With the recent announcement made by our government officials to lift the State of Public Health Emergency across the province. Blood Tribe Chief and Council, Blood Tribe Department of Health and Blood Tribe Emergency Management Team reminds all members that the reserve is still in a State of Emergency and all restrictions are still in effect.


• Curfew – From 9 pm – 6 am• Travel Restrictions – Essential travel only (food, fuel and medical), limit travel to south zone only (Granum – south) and for non-tribal members to continue travel through the reserve without stopping• Social Gatherings – No more than 15 people indoors and 50 outdoors The Tribe emphasizes that even though the province is allowing for social gatherings of up to 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors, that it’s very important to abide by our social gathering restrictions set for the reserve. Especially, since the reserve is currently categorized as a (Watch) zone in the province, due to the percentage of COVID-19 infected cases per person ratio.
