Confirmation of Cases and Contact Tracing in First Nations Communities - COVID-19: UPDATE
National • English • Public Health, Indigenous Services Canada program
The public health system and how health care is administered in First Nations communities is different in each province and territory. If/when a case of COVID-19 is confirmed in a First Nation, the specific/administrative steps taken by regional/local health officials will vary according to provincial/territorial guidelines. However, the principles and priorities of providing support as required and ensuring that each case is managed appropriately remain the same across the country.
