George Wilson added the two people who have tested positive did not contract the virus in the Tsleil-Waututh community, but got COVID-19 while visiting people in another community.

Once they tested positive, they received direction from public health about how to get home safely to the North Shore without exposing anyone else to the virus, she said in the address.

The two people are now home safe and are being monitored, she said.

George Wilson appealed to community members to “stay within your small bubbles” to make sure the virus remains contained.

The Tsleil-Waututh join a number of other Coastal First Nations who are dealing with clusters of COVID-19 cases in their communities.

The neighbouring Squamish Nation has confirmed 38 cases of COVID-19 among members since the beginning of September.

Of those, 27 have been cleared from isolation, while 11 of the cases remained active.
