Updates from CBHSSJB
The Public Health Department of the Cree Health Board has recommended that isolation measures required under MSIL be further reduced. These recommendations were presented this week to Cree Leadership. Cree Nation Councils are reviewing the recommendations to determine whether to amend their Local Mandatory Self-Isolation laws. People should check with their council and PSO for updates about when changes to the MSIL take effect in their community.
The Cree Health Board will start vaccinating Eeyou Istchee youth aged 12-17 this week. Vaccines are arriving in the communities on Wednesday, and school vaccination starts on Thursday, June 3.
