With guidance from the Oneida Nation Public Health Officer and Oneida Nation health professionals, the Oneida Business Committee (OBC) took action on Wednesday, August 4 to cancel the tentatively scheduled August 26, 2021 General Tribal Council (GTC) meeting.
The Nation has been diligently monitoring COVID-19 statistics and currently there is a significant rise in COVID-19 activity. According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, COVID-19 activity within Brown and Outagamie Counties is currently in the high category, after being in the low category only a few weeks ago. Also, the Oneida Nation Reservation continues to be under a Public Health State of Emergency until September 26, 2021. The OBC determined that the cancellation of the GTC meeting was necessary to protect the health, safety, and welfare of tribal members and our community.
Potential rescheduled dates for the August 26, 2021 meeting and the status of the tentatively scheduled September 16, 2021 and October 3, 2021 GTC meetings will be considered and reviewed during the August 11, 2021 OBC meeting.
