Gathering capacity limits lifted in Nunavik
New measures allow bars, gyms and churches to open without COVID-19 restrictions
The Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services has lifted several restrictions on gatherings in the region.
As of Saturday, there are no longer capacity limits for bars, restaurants, extracurricular activities, churches, meetings and at-home get-togethers. The health board announced the changes on its official Facebook page on March 10.
Although there’s no limit on gatherings at private residences, the health board still recommends that people keep their get-togethers to a maximum of 10 people.
In elder homes, residents are allowed to have two visitors at a time, or a maximum of four throughout the day, and they are allowed to leave to attend private gatherings.
Mask requirements and physical distancing measures are still in place in public spaces, as well as work and education settings, but proof of vaccination is no longer required.
For travel, quarantine and testing upon arrival to destinations are no longer required. Proof of vaccination and authorization for travel to Nunavik from the south remains in effect.
Active COVID-19 cases in Nunavik have been on the decline for the past few weeks. The health board reported there were 46 active cases in the region as of March 10.
