On November 12, the Mille Lacs Band's Tribal Emergency Response Committee (TERC) held an emergency meeting and made the decision to transition the Government operations to virtual-service delivery for all Band government, health, and education services that can be delivered in a virtual environment.
TERC unanimously agreed these safety measures are critical to protect our Band Members and employees from what is now an uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 in the region. Rest assured, the most critical services our Band members count on will continue to be provided.
A letter has been sent to all Heads of Households with the full explanation.
Please use the list below if you have questions or needs during this period.
