COVID Update, December 14, 2021; Delay in Reporting
December 14, 2021; 4:26 p.m., Sitansisk: New Brunswick Public Health has informed Sitansisk Band Administration of a delay in reporting of cases of COVID-19 in the community. This is due to a surge in demand for testing and results will be available either late tonight or tomorrow. As of yesterday, there were 6 Active Cases, 36 Recovered for a total of 42 cases.
The Health Centre will be putting on a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Maqiyahtimok tomorrow, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with first, second, booster and pediatric doses available. There will also be a PCR testing clinic on Thursday. At present, new isolation requirements mean anyone who is unvaccinated and sharing a home with a positive case of COVID-19 will need to isolate for 14 days, beyond Christmas Day. Vaccinated individuals will need to isolate for at least five days, pending a negative PCR test. Please do your best to keep yourself and your community safe in the coming days, as we all look forward to a COVID-free holiday season.
Public Health asks people answer calls from private numbers as this is how calls will appear for the purposes of contact tracing and reporting test results to patients. PCR tests can be booked via the Health Centre. They also request members continue to take all precautions, both in and out of the community as cases are rising in the region, with 100 cases reported in the province today. Addictions and mental health personnel remain available at +1 (506) 688-3721. Rapid testing kits can be picked up at the Health Centre or delivered in the community by calling Security at +1 (506) 447-8721.
