Samson Cree Nation warns residents about COVID-19 case

A non-resident member who recently visited Maskwacis and Ma-Me-O beach has tested positive.

Samson Cree Nation put out a warning on social media Sunday about a non-resident member who visited the community and has recently tested positive for COVID-19.

A Community Health Nurse with Maskwacis Health Services informed Samson Cree Nation of the potential of COVID-19 transmission in the community.

The non-resident member who tested positive may have transmitted the infection while visiting Maskwacis. There is a chance of transmission from those who came in contact with the positive case while they were at Ma-Me-O Beach as well.

Anyone who has already been identified as a contact is being tested and the individual who tested positive is self-isolating away from the community.

The memo states that effective immediately there will be a two week closure of all non-essential programs and services.

At this time Maskwacis Health Services and Community Health have confirmed that there are no active cases of COVID-19 in Maskwacis, Alta.
