This change in order is an added layer of protection, following the Nunavut chief public health officer’s decision to allow fully-vaccinated travellers exemption from staying in southern isolation hubs for 14 days.

The order states masks must be worn in public outdoor spaces where physical distancing can’t be maintained, during indoor gatherings and at work.

Youth taking part in school-based activities and organized sports programs will be exempt from this order.
