Updated Self-Isolation and Quarantine Guidelines

Due to the ongoing support and compliance with our measures, the number of active cases in Listuguj has reduced to zero.  To ensure the safety of our community and loved ones, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government would like to update you on our new self-isolation and quarantine measures.


Travel that does not require self-isolation:

Essential travel to a ‘Red Zone’ with NO overnight stay is permitted without the need to self-isolate upon return to Listuguj. This has been defined as grocery shopping, custody pick up/ drop off, medical/health, legal, attending a funeral, LMG business, government in-person appointments/renewals and construction supply purchases.
