LDF To Rescind Shelter-At-Home Order And Curfew
The Lac du Flambeau tribal community’s shelter-at-home order, curfew, and tribal land access restrictions will end at midnight on Wednesday.
The shelter-at-home order and nightly curfew, a response to COVID-19, has been in effect since March 24.
“This has been a tremendous challenge over many months, and we have many, many people to thank for their bravery and commitment,” said LDF Tribal President Joseph Wildcat Sr. “Our Tribal Members, Tribal Council, Incident Command Team, department and program teams, volunteers, as well as partners at local, state and federal levels, all played crucial roles in working with us to adapt and meet the needs of our community in the face of an historic pandemic.”
Lake of the Torches Resort and Casino will reopen, as will boat landings, campgrounds, and retail businesses. Government buildings will reopen on Thursday.
In a release, the tribe said the Tribal Council may consider reimplementing Tribal Lands restrictions if the situation warrants.
As of Friday, one person had tested positive for COVID-19 in the Lac du Flambeau community. That person has recovered and is no longer in isolation.
