Latest Information & Support

In Tahltan Territory
  • Masks are now mandatory in all community spaces in Dease Lake, Iskut and Telegraph Creek and hand sanitizing is a must.
  • In-Territory residents are still allowed essential travel only (medical related appointments) within Northwest BC (Terrace, Prince Rupert, Kitimat, and as far as Smithers only); however, we are recommending you now self-isolate for 14 days upon return to the Territory. DO NOT MOVE AROUND IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TO.
  • Anyone who receives a COVID-19 test MUST quarantine while waiting for test results.
  • Contact tracing, if the virus reaches our Territory, will identify the individual responsible. DO NOT LET THAT BE YOU!

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.
