Reminder: Masks mandatory territory-wide Monday

The Department of Health would like to remind Nunavummiut that effective Monday, June 14, masks will be mandatory in all communities.

The change in order is an added layer of protection following Nunavut’s Chief Public Health Officer’s decision to allow vaccinated travellers to be exempt from 14-day isolation.

The order states that mask must be worn in outdoor public spaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained, during indoor gatherings and at work.

Youth participating in school-based activities and organized sports programs are exempt from this order.
