Updates from CBHSSJB
Abitibi Temiscamingue - Region 8 is no longer considered an Area of Risk, as of May 4. This means people travelling from Abitibi to Eeyou Istchee will no longer be required to isolate for 14 days. This decision was made based on new criteria for assessing a region's risk. Abitibi is doing well with vaccination, and they have worked hard to contain and prevent new cases of Covid.
CBHSSJB Public Health is closely monitoring a COVID-19 workplace outbreak in Region 10’s Chibougamau/Chapais sectors. There are 7 confirmed cases connected to the outbreak, which was traced to an industrial sector workplace.
In Quebec, most new cases of COVID-19 are caused by variants. These new cases are affecting younger people, who are getting sicker and are often being hospitalized.
The Cree Nation has not reported any cases of the variant in Eeyou Istchee. Our people have the freedom and benefits of travelling between communities to gather and visit family. For this to continue, we must keep up with precautionary measures even as we head out to the land for Goose Break this spring.
