(Source: CBC News)

News sources state that Fort Albany First Nation is also going back into community lockdown because of this first COVID case in Mushkegowuk territory. The First Nations is requiring anyone who returns to the community to quarantine for 14 days and get tested for COVID-19, which is also now mandatory for anyone who has recently arrived in Fort Albany from Moose Factory or Moosonee.

Fort Albany is also taking steps to bring band members back to the community over the next few days, with a “special charter” flight planned for Wednesday and special exemptions for those accompanying the remains of loved ones that are to be buried in Fort Albany.

Kashechewan First Nation is also going into lockdown for 14 days and closed its elementary and secondary schools for that time.
