    En date du 28 mars 2020, il y a nombre très faible nombre de cas de COVID-19 en au Bas-St-Laurent, en Gaspésie, sur la Côte-Nord et aux Îles de la Madeleine. Cette situation pourrait être appelée à changer, on ne constate pas de transmission communautaire dans ces régions. Les équipages sont au maximum de quatre à six personnes au Québec. Les bateaux sont petits, donc, il ne sera pas possible de s’assurer de la distanciation sociale des personnes. Dans un contexte où des travailleurs vont se côtoyer dans un bateau pour des périodes allant de plusieurs heures à plusieurs jours voire semaines, la mesure la plus importante est de s’assurer que les travailleurs qui embarquent sur le bateau ne présentent pas de symptômes de la COVID-19, ne sont pas des cas ou des contacts de cas.

  • April-13-20

    Toute reprise des services non essentiels doit être effectuée de sorte que la transmission de la COVID-19 soit contrôlée. En effet, il est primordial d’éviter une augmentation importante de personnes infectées, hospitalisées ou aux soins intensifs, ou de décès.

    Plusieurs conditions doivent être respectées pour s’assurer d’un contrôle de la COVID-19 au Québec. Le non-respect de ces conditions pourrait mener à une augmentation importante des cas et par le fait même à la possibilité de revoir la stratégie de réouverture des milieux de travail (nombre, type de milieux, mesures de distanciation et de protection exigées) afin de rétablir l’équilibre et de limiter les impacts de la COVID-19...
