Because of COVID-19 and its variants:
- Anyone coming from an Area of Risk should be tested for COVID-19 on Day 1, 3, and 5 after their return. This testing is part of Step 3 of the deconfinement management plan.
- Testing is also recommended for people before they travel to their bush camps.
- People are required to wear a mask during airlift (by plane or helicopter).
The COVID-19 virus can spread fast. To prevent an outbreak in a camp:
- Get vaccinated, or update your vaccines and boosters before heading out to camp.
- Respect physical distancing (2 metres/6 feet) from people not staying at your camp).
- Wear a mask around people you don't live with, if your can't maintain physical distance
- Cough and sneeze into your elbow or tissue.
- Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer.
- Disinfect surfaces.
- Air out your cabin often.
It is everyone's priority to protect
- Be sure to have a box of medical masks in case someone develops symptoms.
- Pick up rapid test kits in your community to bring to camp. Find out where they are available from your Cree Nation council or PSO.
- Be cautious when visiting or entertaining guests who aren't part of your regular household.
- If you are attending a feast in the bush, wear a mask, keep your distance and wash/sanitize your hands often.
