The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) has received a number of calls asking for clarification on mandatory weekly testing to access essential goods and services across the bridge (e.g. medical appointments, groceries, work, etc.).
Listuguj community members and residents CAN continue to cross for essential goods and services without a COVID test. If there are any changes to this measure, our government will inform community members and residents through the official LMG channels.
Chief and Council remain firm in their stance that mandatory weekly testing is invasive, and negotiations with the Government of New Brunswick and New Brunswick Public Health continue.
In the meantime, essential travel once a week is allowed without a COVID test. Also, the LMG is looking to organize information sessions related to privacy rights, which includes the protection of your medical history.
