The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government would like to inform community members that we are taking precautionary measures to reduce and minimize the risk of the potential transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Listuguj. As of March 12, 2020, the risk remains low.
By being proactive and encouraging good hygiene, we hope that the potential risk of transmission will remain low. To achieve this, we are calling on all community members and LMG Staff to support these efforts by implementing the following measures:
- Wash hands frequently;
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth;
- Routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces at home and in the workplace;
- Practice good cough etiquette;
- If traveling internationally, please consult the Government of Canada’s travel health notices before travel. Link: https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories
We are encouraging all community members who experience symptoms of acute-respiratory illness (cough, fever, and difficulty breathing) to contact your local health professional or call 811. As COVID-19 remains a public health concern, we are asking that in addition to seeking medical advice LMG Staff report any related symptoms to their immediate supervisor.
Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our community members and staff. We thank you for your cooperation and commitment in taking these necessary steps to keep our community safe.
