White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator meets with Fond du Lac tribal leaders

CLOQUET, MN -- The White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator met with Fond du Lac tribal leaders Friday to learn about the tribe's efforts surrounding COVID-19.

Dr. Deborah Birx assumed the role in March under Vice President Mike Pence.

Tribal leaders including Chairman Kevin Dupuis told Birx Thursday the COVID-19 pandemic has brutally swept through Indian Country.

Fond du Lac experienced several positive cases earlier this month

"The visit from Dr. Birx was a good time to reflect on the things we've done right and what we can work on to continue to keep our community safe," Dupuis said.

Dupuis recognized the tribe's Public Health Emergency Preparedness team who has been meeting daily since COVID-19 hit the US.
