Bois Forte Band secures COVID-19 tests
April 27, 2020
Based in northeast Minnesota, the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa will soon be able to test members on the reservation for the coronavirus.
The Nett Lake Health Clinic received one COVID-19 analyzer for testing from the Indian Health Services, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "We are receiving three kits per week, which includes 24 tests in each kit," Chavers said earlier this week. "These tests are for anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 and they've been screened by clinic staff either in Nett Lake or Vermilion."
