The Nisga'a Lisms School Board has reported that several students in Nisga'a elementary and secondary school communities have tested positive for COVID-19.

The exposure took place between November 16th and 20th.

The students who tested positive are self-isolating at home with the support of local public health teams. 

The Nisga'a Valley Health Authority says contact tracing is underway.

Health Authority has also requested that families with children attending the Nisa'a Elementary Secondary School self-isolate for a minimum of 14 days.

 Last week, the Nisga'a Lisims Government announced that the Nation is going back to phase one of its pandemic safety plans after receiving confirmation that someone in the Terrace area tested positive for COVID-19.

Travel to and from Nisga'a territory is restricted, as is travel between the four Nisga'a villages.

Checkpoints have been set up. 

Social distancing and masks are mandatory in all public areas, and social gatherings have been prohibited.

The restrictions will be in place until at least December 4th.
