At this time, travellers who have received their 2 doses of vaccine do not have to self-isolate when they return to the community, even if they are returning from an area of risk such as Montreal. You will be required to show your proof of vaccination when you travel.

Most Cree Nation Councils have adopted Public Health’s recommendation to reduce isolation.  

The changes to MSIL will mean fully vaccinated people will no longer have to isolate when they return from any region outside Eeyou Istchee, including areas of risk.

Reminder: Check with your PSO before traveling outside of Eeyou Istchee.

The Cree Nation Government and the Cree Board of Health are closely monitoring our neighbouring areas to assess the risks associated with travel. We are looking for any increase in the number of cases, changes in the regions' ability to manage epidemics, and their ability to conduct contact tracing.
