Confirmed Case of COVID-19 in Listuguj

Confirmed Case of COVID-19 in Listuguj

August 9, 2021 – On the evening of August 7, 2021, Quebec Public Health notified the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government that a community member tested positive for COVID-19. Quebec Public Health is currently conducting contact tracing to identify people who have been in close contact with the individual who tested positive.

Be advised, if you had your first vaccine ONLY, and have been in contact with someone who has tested positive with COVID-19, you need to be tested.

Again, contact tracing is currently underway. For those who have been in close contact with the individual QC Public Health will contact you directly, and you will be asked to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms to limit any potential spread. The individual who tested positive is self-isolating, and their health will be monitored by public health.  The Listuguj Community Health Services will provide support to families directly affected.

We want to remind our community members and residents that what we need now more than ever is to practice mindfulness and compassion. The virus is a disease that does not discriminate.

On behalf of the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government, we wish this community member a swift and full recovery.

MOBILE COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINIC IN LISTUGUJ

The Listuguj Community Health Services has arranged with the Quebec CISSS to operate a Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in our community. This comes just in time as new ‘positive cases’ are being reported in multiple communities throughout our Region.

To date, here in Listuguj, our vaccination rate stands at 60% for the first dose, and 46% for the 2nd dose. With the new aggressive ‘Delta variant’ spreading across Canada, it’s more important than ever that we all get vaccinated, especially our SECOND DOSE.

Here’s what you need to know:

What:           Your first or second dose.

Both Moderna and the Pfizer Vaccine will be available (your choice).

When:           Friday, August 13th, 2021 from 1:00pm – 6:00pm

Saturday, August 14th, 2021 from 10:00am – 5:oopm

NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY

Where:          Education Complex parking lot

Who:              Anyone who wants the vaccine age 12+

Our goal is to reach 75% vaccination rate for Listuguj. This will help ensure the health and well-being of our community during this on-going Pandemic.

 

 

COVID Vaccination in Listuguj

The Listuguj Community Health Services has been offering COVID Vaccinations to the community of Listuguj since the beginning of February 2021. Due to the demand, resources and vaccine expiration limitations, Listuguj Health Services will no longer be administering COVID Vaccinations to the adult population of Listuguj. However, children 12-17 years old who received their first dose from the Listuguj Health Center will be contacted for their second dose.

Vaccines are currently being offered by the CISSS and pharmacies in our region, making vaccination readily accessible to our population. Walk-in Clinics will be held in Pointe-à-la-Croix over the next two weeks. We encourage any community members who wish to receive a first or second dose to do so at these clinics. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available. Please refer to the following press release for more details.

In Good Health,

Listuguj Community Health Services
