This session will highlight the unique circumstances of fly-in Indigenous communities during COVID-19 as well as some of the proactive emergency planning and other responses these communities and Arrows Regional Health Authority (FARHA) have achieved over the last 15 months. The Four . (FARHA) is governed by the four Island Lake Anishininew Nations, and was created to help improve health outcomes in northern Manitoba. These Nations include Garden Hill, Red Sucker Lake, St Theresa Point and Wasagamack. These same communities were the intended recipients of the highly controversial body-bag responses by the government during the past H1N1 pandemic.
