Community Notice – Checkpoint / Thanksgiving Update

Starting tomorrow, October 8, 2020, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government will be implementing a second checkpoint at the intersection of Dundee Road and 132 highway in order to continue building awareness of the ‘Twinning Bubble’ and its guidelines.

As an additional measure, visitors travelling from ‘Red Zones’ for non-essential reasons will not be permitted entry into Listuguj at this time. Travel to and from ‘Red Zones’ for essential reasons such as work, medical appointments and custody arrangements is still permitted.

We all have a role to play in protecting the health and safety of our community, which also includes mental health. We ask that you please express kindness and support to those who must travel for essential reasons.

With the upcoming long weekend, we would like to remind community members of the importance of being mindful of our shared responsibility in keeping our community safe.

For those returning home for the long weekend, we ask that you please do a self-assessment before your planned travel:

  • If your are returning to Listuguj from a ‘Red Zone’ or an area with a high number of confirmed COVID cases, we ask that you please reconsider your travel plans until it is safe to do so.
  • If you are travelling from within ‘The Atlantic Bubble’, please familiarize yourself with the Public Health guidelines of the current province you reside in as you may be subject to restrictions upon return.
