Please note that this year there will be No Annual General Meeting. Due to concerns with COVID-19, the decision has been made to complete the Annual Report and mail it to all Band members living on -reserve and to those who request one living off-reserve, as we will need your mailing address. The Annual Report will also be posted online as well. There will be a comment card attached and you can email in questions or drop off the comment card to directors and have your questions answered. We apologize for this, but feel it is in the best safety of all community to not host the event.
COVID -19 UPDATE
Please note that we continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19. We will update as information becomes available to us. For the Health and Safety of our community members, patorns and staff, Masks are Now MANDATORY in all Pictou Landing First Nation business and administration buildings.
REOPENING of Administration Buildings
We are excited to announce that we are opening our administration buildings. Things will look a little different as we work to navigate the new COVID-19 guidelines. Our first priority is to ensure the safety of the community and all staff. We need to work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
On Thursday July 2, PLFN Staff will return to work at the Band Administration, Health Centre and Fisheries.
PLFN Band Administration and Fisheries staff will return to work, but the buildings will remain closed to the public initially. We want to ensure we have the proper measures in place before the buildings are open to the public. Any items needing be dropped off, such as Power bills, report cards, Chief and Council requests, can be dropped off at the newly installed mailbox at the Band Office (the box will be located to the right when you walk in the building and will be secured). You can reach all staff by calling the Band Office at 902.752.4912.
The Health Centre Staff is excited to announce the reopening of the Health Centre on July 2nd, 2020. We will be implementing new guidelines to keep the community safe. In respect of CDC guidelines (and to minimize the amount of staff and clients in the building) programs will remain on hold, but our primary care clinic will reopen- by appointment only. You can call Michelle Denny at 902.752.0085 to book an appointment with our Nurse Practitioner or Nurses. Drop-ins/walk-ins will not be permitted. Please be patient while we transition into these new times.
Also note that with our Health centre reopening, the Mobile health line will no longer be required and be disconnected on July 2nd. Our health centre line 902.752.0085 will be available for calls during regular business hours Monday-Friday.
We remind everyone to continue to practice social distancing measures, consistent hand washing and if you are not feeling well to call 811.
