The Public Health Department of the Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James Bay recommends that masks continue to be worn indoors in Eeyou Istchee, even after changes to Quebec’s indoor masking policy take effect.  

 Masking is still recommended in all indoor public spaces in Eeyou Istchee after May 14.  

People who travel to Eeyou Istchee from an Area of Risk must do testing and follow Reduced Activity Protocol required in each step of the Deconfinement Plan.
