COVID-19 Update

This page contains the Cree School Board’s current situation and response to COVID-19.

Current Situation

Updated June 6, 2022

We want first to acknowledge the National Assembly’s decision on Bill 28, “An Act to terminate the Public Health emergency while maintaining transitional measures necessary to protect the health of the population,” which was effective on June 1, 2022. As a result, the Government of Québec has put an end to the public health emergency declared on March 13, 2020.

Following the consultation with Public Health, as of Monday, June 6, 2022, the Cree School Board is pleased to announce that:

  • Students and employees will no longer be required to complete the Daily Health Checks in our schools, centres, and offices.
  • Procedural mask is no longer required; however, Public Health recommends wearing a procedural mask in common areas and continuing physical distancing, but it is not mandatory.

All Youth sector schools are in Scenario A of the pdf Alert Chart , which will be effective from Monday, June 6, 2022 until the end of the school year.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, please stay home and get tested. As a reminder, Public Health continues to recommend getting your vaccine and boosters against COVID-19 to prevent any serious illnesses. In addition, you can call your local clinic to book an appointment.

We want to show our appreciation to everyone who followed public health measures throughout the pandemic, and we appreciate your continuous cooperation.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not over. So, let’s continue to keep each other safe and healthy!
