COVID-19 Update Tuesday, December 28, 2021 – Rapid Test Kit Pick-up & Testing Centre Information
COVID-19 Update Tuesday, December 28, 2021:
The Listuguj Unified Command is reporting 2 new cases within the Community for Tuesday, December 27, 2021.
The active case count is now 2.
We ask that community members maintain their continued diligence and remain proactive.
With the onset of the Omicron Variant, the holiday break will see a rising trend of confirmed cases within and outside the local area from the increased travel and gatherings. While the number of confirmed cases may grow quickly, this surge of infections was anticipated by Public Health.
The best practice for the Health and Well-Being of the community is that we continue that follow public health guidelines such as handwashing, sanitizing, mask-wearing, social distancing, and receive testing when needed.
