On Thursday, August 26, the Cree Nation Government and the Cree Health Board co-hosted a public information session on COVID-19. Grand Chief Mandy Gull-Masty and the Director of Public Health, Dr. Yv Bonnier-Viger, answered questions in English and Cree about the Delta variant, vaccination and testing.
The Delta variant is more contagious and can cause more severe disease. A person with the Delta variant will infect more people than if they had other variants. The Delta variant may lead to more hospitalizations and complications.
