Self-Screening Tool for COVID-19 for First Nation Visitors or Members Returning to Communities

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) is working closely with First Nations partners, the Public Health Agency of Canada, other departments such as Heath Canada, Public Safety and provincial and territorial counterparts to protect the health and safety of First Nations and support First Nations communities in responding to public health threats, including COVID-19.

To support the safety and wellbeing of First Nations community members and visitors/members returning to First Nations communities, ISC has developed the following guidance. Using methods such as self-screening in First Nations communities is one way to prevent the introduction of the virus into communities and to decrease the burden of illness resulting from the pandemic.

Travel and entry restrictions may vary by province/territory and community. It is the responsibility of visitors and returning community members to review these requirements. Additional exceptions may be identified for individuals deemed as essential workers, which may include but not be limited to those employed in healthcare, emergency services, and food and beverage industries.
