COVID-19 (Delta Variant) Active in MRC Avignon

August 16, 2021 – Quebec Public Health has confirmed with the Listuguj Community Health Services that the COVID-19 Delta Variant is present in MRC Avignon, which includes the Listuguj First Nation community.

We wish to remind our community residents to continue to follow the general safety precautions for the Quebec Alert Level 1 (Green) for COVID-19.  It is important to continue to maintain physical distancing, wear a face mask, wash your hands frequently, practice respiratory etiquette and find an alternative greeting.

After weeks of planning, a COVID-19 Mobile Vaccination Clinic was held in Listuguj on August 13 & 14, 2021.  This Clinic was made possible through the partnership between the LCHS and the CISSS/CLSC.  A total of 161 community residents received either their first or second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine.

The LCHS/CISSS will coordinate another Mobile Vaccination Clinic in Listuguj in early October.  Later, the LCHS will announce both the time and location for this clinic.
