Executive Order allows restored services for Band members


Due to positive changes the Mille Lacs Band has made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chief Executive Melanie Benjamin signed Executive Order 2021-01 on February 4, which will begin the process of restoring regular hours, staffing levels, and access to tribal government buildings and services.

The new order replaces the stay-at-home order issued last year with a stay-at-home recommendation and authorizes the Commissioners to begin gradually expanding operations and services as long as they have implemented COVID-19 Health and Safety Procedures that Commissioner of Health and Human Services Nicole Anderson has approved.

Commissioner Anderson may still require and enforce additional safety procedures for any department.
