In Tahltan Territory
- Tahltans in Territory are required to stay at home, with the exception of essential services and going to the supermarket and or medical facilities. Going out on the land with family you are self-isolating with is okay.
- Tahltans in Territory are required to social distance. Public gatherings of 2 or more people are forbidden.
- Tahltans in Territory are required to remain in Territory and do their shopping in our community supermarkets.
- Tahltan outside of Territory should remain where they are and follow provincial social distancing guidelines.
If returning from work camp or arriving in Territory for any reason, self-isolate for 14 days.
All events on Territory are currently cancelled.
We understand that a lot of people are using their newfound time to get out and go hunting. During this crisis is worth reminding everyone to respect wildlife, take only what you need and use all that you take. Please be aware that cows are pregnant during this period. Allowing them to produce calves will help the declining populations recover. Aerial surveys show that 75% of all moose close to the communities are cow/calves. In addition, please be safe when out on the land as grizzly bears will be waking up from hibernation.
