Quebec Health Ministry Self-Isolation Guidelines

On August 28, Quebec’s Health Ministry announced new provincial guidelines for self-isolation, specifically for confirmed cases of COVID-19, that apply ONLY to people who tested positive for COVID-19. The Ministry guidance now recommends a minimum of 10 days of self-isolation for confirmed COVID-19 cases, if all of their symptoms have resolved by that time.

These revised provincial guidelines do not apply to the Mandatory Self-Isolation Law in Eeyou Istchee. Under local Cree laws, people travelling from Risk Areas still need to self-isolate for 14 days when they return to the communities.
