The CLSC Naskapi and the Direction de santé publique de la Côte-Nord are currently carrying out an investigation aimed at identifying, as quickly as possible, cases of active tuberculosis in the community as well as contacts with latent tuberculosis infection, in order to limit transmission and prevent new cases.

A community member was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a serious contagious disease that can lead to complications.

The main symptoms of active tuberculosis are:

• A cough for more than 3 weeks, often accompanied by sputum, sometimes with blood;

• Fever and night sweats;

• Great fatigue;

• Loss of weight and appetite.

If you have these symptoms, consult the health center in your community as soon as possible.

The North Shore Public Health Department and the CLSC Naskapi are actively working to identify people with tuberculosis in the community in order to treat them quickly. To this end, people identified as at risk will be asked for an assessment that may include:

• A meeting with a nurse to look for symptoms;

• A medical evaluation;

• A chest X-ray;

• A sputum analysis;

• A tuberculin skin test (arm test) or blood test.

If one of your loved ones has these symptoms, quickly inform a CLSC Naskapi health professional so that they can receive the help they need.


• Call the health center (418-585-2110 ext. 215) if you have had a cough for more than 3 weeks.

• Participate in the evaluation if you are asked.

• If you are worried about TB, call the health center.
