Isolation Units

Above, the pair of isolation units that were delivered to Rainy River First Nations (RRFN) on Friday by Northern Superior Structural Solutions (NSSS) sit on their prepped lot awaiting utility hookups before they're ready to take in COVID-19 patients. One of the units will act as a four-unit isolation suite, the other as a nurse's station.

Evacuation continues

The evacuation of the municipality of Red Lake is ongoing as a nearby forest fire continues to burn.

In a message to Facebook this morning, Red Lake Mayor Fred Mota stressed that even as firefighters continue their work to battle the blaze, residents need to be on the move.

“I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for our community to evacuate,” Mota wrote.
