Quebec is in the 3rd wave of the pandemic. COVID-19 cases continue to go up in many regions including Ontario. This is related to variants of the virus that spread more easily. In our neighbouring regions of Lac St-Jean and Abitibi there are new cases reported every day. This continues to be a concern for people travelling to and from Eeyou Istchee.

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.
