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.

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.

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.
