Dear members of the community,

The Corps de police des Abénakis (CPDA) as well as the Odanak Band Council would like to remind the population that all internal or external gatherings throughout the territory are FORBIDDEN.

We also remind you that any gathering of two or more people, excluding members of the same family living under the same roof, constitutes a gathering.

Any person who does not respect these instructions will be liable to a fine of between $1,000 and $6,000 under the Public Health Act.

Members of the community wishing to contact the Abenaki Police may do so at any time:

  • For an emergency: dial 9-1-1;
  • For a denunciation or to make a complaint about non-compliance, we invite you to send a private message on the Facebook page of the CPDA. Be assured that it will be treated completely anonymously and that you will receive a reply as soon as possible.

Finally, the CPDA patrollers are very present on the road, so do not hesitate to contact them for any additional information.

RAPPEL | USAGE DE PROTECTION INDIVIDUELLE TEL QUE LES GANTS ET LES MASQUES (In French only)

By |April 2nd, 2020|

Le port de gants ou de masque peut donner un faux sentiment de sécurité. En effet, ceux-ci ne remplacent en aucun temps l’hygiène des mains. Il n’en demeure pas moins qu’il y a un risque de contamination lorsqu’on les retire.

Il est recommandé d’en faire l’usage seulement lorsque la situation le nécessite, c’est-à-dire si l’on doit entrer en contact étroit avec une personne qui présente des symptômes de la Covid-19, que l’on suspecte qu’elle pourrait être porteuse ou si elle revient de voyage au courant des 14 derniers jours. Les gants à usage unique doivent être enfilés au moment de l’intervention à exécuter puis retirés immédiatement après celle-ci.

LE LAVAGE DES MAINS DEMEURE LA MESURE DE BASE À ADOPTER.
