Flu Shots Update

The Listuguj Community Health Services has started running the 2020 Flu Vaccination Program.  Due to COVID-19, we are operating this program by ‘appointment only’.  A large volume of community members has already called in to schedule an appointment.  We are very pleased that so many of us are taking this flu season seriously.

We are following the COVID-19 safety precautions built into our process to keep our clients and staff members safe.  We are counting on your patience and understanding as we move through the appointment schedules.

  • If you have already called in for an appointment, rest assured that you will be contacted directly to schedule a date and time.
  • If you have not yet called to have your name added to our vaccination list, please do so at (418) 788-2155.
  • And, most importantly, for those of you who have received an appointment, we ask that you please respect the schedule given to you out of consideration for your fellow community members.

Again, your Team at the Health Center is working hard to ensure that every Listuguj community member who wants a flu shot will get one in a safe and timely manner.

Second Confirmed Case, One Recovered

 

Friday, October 23, 2020 – The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) is announcing one (1) new confirmed case and one (1) recovered case of COVID-19. The total number of active cases in Listuguj is one.

The LMG and Quebec Public Health are working collaboratively to monitor the situation closely and to provide on-going support to those affected. At this time, Quebec Public Health has determined that there is no risk to community members and residents, as the individual has been at home self-isolating.

The LMG can confirm, with the consent of the individuals who have tested positive, that the new positive case is directly related to the first and is contained to that single household. Members of the household are currently in isolation and are taking every step to contain the virus. We thank them for their on-going efforts in helping us keep each other safe.

We are pleased to report that the first individual who tested positive for COVID-19 has recovered. At this time, they will continue to self-isolate at home.

This is a reminder to all community members and residents of the importance of following the recommended Public Health advice:

  • Monitor for symptoms;
  • Stay home when sick;
  • Wash hands frequently;
  • Practice proper cough etiquette; and
  • Wear masks when out in public.
