GN planning COVID-19 update for Aqsarniit school community
Nunavut’s COVID-19 caseload unchanged at 9 on Sunday
Students at Aqsarniit Middle School and their parents should expect an update from the Government of Nunavut about its plans for school on Monday, Premier Joe Savikataaq says.
Two people at the school were diagnosed with COVID-19. The government included that in its Saturday update on the disease, which put the number of active cases within the territory at nine.
The caseload remained unchanged on Sunday, as the government had no new cases to report, the premier wrote in a tweet Sunday.
Savikataaq urged Nunavummiut to continue following public health measures aimed at preventing the spread of the disease, including wearing a mask, physical distancing and handwashing. He issued a reminder for people to keep their “bubbles” small.
He repeated the government’s now-familiar plea to get vaccinated and called on parents to make vaccination appointments for their teens.
“Stay safe and take care,” Savikataaq wrote.
