GARDEN RIVER FIRST NATION HOUSING MEMO
I am hoping everyone is staying safe and practicing social distancing. COVID-19 has presented
our community and the world with very challenging circumstances. With what has happened to
date and the unknowns of the future the Garden River Housing Department will assist our
members in the safest and accommodating way possible.
The Garden River Housing Department will continue to do emergency call outs. What are
considered emergency call outs? No heat, no hot water, floods and electrical issues.
When the Garden River Housing Department receives a call for an emergency, the staff
member will be screening both the home’s family and contractor for any COVID-19 symptoms.
If the home’s family has any symptoms we recommend that the family seek appropriate help for
further testing, however, we will not send in a contractor, we will instead do our best to
troubleshoot over the phone what the problem is and attempt to fix this way. If a contractor has
symptoms, again we will recommend that they seek the appropriate medial help, but we will
contact another contractor to assist with the call out.
All call outs will still be charged back to the home, unless it is a Section 95 unit and even
Section 95 units could be charged back if the emergency call is deemed a Tenant
