Child & Family Services return to work phase 1 update.

June 26th, 2020


To: Community Members and Staff

From: Child & Family Services

Response Measures: COVID-19


Dear Community Members and Staff;


I am pleased to announce that as of June 26th, zone 5 will be moving to the yellow phase of the recovery and reopening plan. As part of the phase 1 of the Eel River Bar First Nation COVID-19 return to work policy, Child & Family Services will resume its regular operations at a reduced capacity as of June 29th, 2020. Our offices will be opened on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will be closed on Wednesday July 1st for Canada Day. Phase 1 of this plan will be reassessed on a weekly basis by the Chief and Council and Senior Staff members which may result in further changes to our hours of operations. The Eel River Bar First Nation COVID-19 return to work policy will strictly be implemented and monitored to assure that everyone’s safety and wellbeing is respected.


Essential Child Protection Services will continue to be available by contacting our on-call services at 987-9911. I would like to emphasize that the measures taken have been difficult for everyone but have played a key role in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 in your community so far. I encourage everyone to continue to follow all recommendations from public health officials. Together we are making a difference.


Please do not hesitate to contact Child and Family Services with respect to any concerns you may have.


I thank everyone for your patience and support during these difficult times.





Schawn Boucher


Director Child & Family Services
