There are five COVID-19 cases in Wood Buffalo’s rural areas, with some of those confirmed to be on the Chipewyan Prairie First Nation (CPFN). The community is adjacent to Janvier.

The virus’ presence was confirmed by Matthew Michetti, executive assistant to Chief Vern Janvier of the CPFN, on Wednesday. AHS spokesperson Tom McMillan confirmed that nine active cases are linked to the community.

Michetti says some residents are quarantining themselves out of caution as they await results. The First Nation is also considering posting signs outside the community’s entrance to let people know COVID-19 is in the area.

The first patient to test positive for COVID-19 in the community was identified on May 14. The individual recovered 11 days later.
