A WEEK OF GRATITUDE FROM UNIFIED COMMAND
May 12, 2020
YAHGUUDANG · RESPECT
Since the Coronavirus was declared a pandemic, All-Island leaders have been working together to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. We are incredibly proud of this unity and how communities have come together. Once again, Haida Gwaii is demonstrating how strong, innovative, and caring we are.
These are extraordinary times and we have worked together as Island citizens to protect our communities, especially Elders and those most vulnerable.
Unified Command would like to say haawa · haw’aa · thank you to all Island residents for following the local states of emergency and the Haida Nation’s state of emergency measures, and to everyone who is staying home and respecting physical distancing.
Haida Gwaii is committed to a collaborative, community-centered response to COVID-19. A Unified Command (UC) was established to ensure all communities are coordinated and involved in local and collective responses. UC includes representatives from the Council of the Haida Nation and each Emergency Operations Centre (EOC). Skidegate and Old Massett, the North Coast Regional District, as well as the Villages of Queen Charlotte, Port Clements, and Masset all have EOCs.
