The current outbreak in the MRC d’Avignon and in the Mi’gmawe community of Listuguj is contained, indicates the director of regional public health, Dr Yves Bonnier-Viger. The cases are all concentrated in the community or in the corner of Pointe-à-la-Croix. There is no great dispersion. Everyone was isolated. We’re in control.

There is also more screening in the MRCRegional county municipality d’Avignon, adds the doctor.

Public health therefore does not expect another surge in the number of cases in the coming days. Dr Bonnier-Viger believes that there should still be more cases that will be added. There are a lot of contacts that have been isolated. The time they incubate the disease, it can take up to 14 days, but as long as they are isolated, it does not worry us too much.

The link with New Brunswick under close scrutiny

Caution remains in order for the population of the sector, especially for those who have to travel to New Brunswick, observes Dr. Bonnier-Viger. You should know that the virus is circulating in this part of the country in a significant way.

The doctor notes that protective measures against the spread of the virus in this province are also less strict. He emphasizes, for example, that wearing a mask is not compulsory. He therefore recommends that people who have to go to the neighboring province to respect the health measures in force in Quebec.

In addition, the public health authorities of Bas-Saint-Laurent reported two new cases of COVID-19 in their report of the pandemic on Tuesday. None of his cases have been detected in one of the three RCMs in eastern Bas-Saint-Laurent.

In the province, the contagion continues to increase. Quebec health authorities have identified 633 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours. Seven more people have died from the disease.
