After the automatic 7-day shutdown, Chief and Council and Aakom-Kiyii Health Services will reassess the situation.
We want to remind the community that there is no immediate risk on the Piikani Nation, we feel it is in our best interest to take a proactive approach to avoid any potential outbreak. We would like to remind everyone that this is just a temporary shutdown, not a lockdown.
Aakom-Kiyii Health Services will be setting up their drive thru testing through-out the weekend. If adverse weather, they will be moving to the community hall.
We ask that you continue to follow these important guidelines in order to keep everyone safe.
A. Airway – Wear your masks
