Band member tests positive
June 12, 2020
A Fond du Lac band member living in Minneapolis has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a press release from the Reservation Business Committee.
The Fond du Lac Human Services division is working with the Minnesota Department of Health, which is conducting the contact tracing investigation, to ensure that all individuals in close contact are notified and tested.
FDL Human Services director Samuel Moose said the band’s clinic and emergency personnel have been preparing for this since January, when their public health emergency preparedness team started meeting about COVID-19.
“[We] will continue to monitor this situation with up-to-date guidance and information from MDH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as we plan for any cases on or near the Reservation,” Moose said.
Band members with COVID-19 questions should call the Fond du Lac nurse triage line at 218-878-2120. After business hours, call 218-879-1227.
