Nak’azdli had declared a local state of emergency on March 23.

“We are asking everyone if you don’t have to leave your house or the community please don’t. Our members and community is our top priority to bend the curve and stop the spread of COVID-19,” officials said.

No further information has been provided to the Caledonia Courier.
