Corona Virus Updates



The IFNA Chiefs Council, in conjunction with the IFNA Health Department, have been proactively developing a strategy to combat COVID-19 spread within its Communities. Part of this strategy is communication with all of the IFNA Communities with the most current information. Please read and share the IFNA Chiefs Council infographic, below, to further help you, your family and your Community.


Check back on this website regularly for further updates on the strategy being untaken by both IFNA and the IFNA Communities.
