Welcome to bright and sunny side of Cambridge Bay. The weather has been so exciting and I think spring is on the way. Although temperatures from Environment Canada and weather reports, it seems that does not bother the Inuit when going out for a snowmobile drive, to go ice fishing and hunting.
A few families have been heading out to the cabins during the Covid-19 pandemic. School is shutdown until at least April 20 according to the Government of Nunavut’s daily updates through TV and radio announcements and of course on social media like Facebook.
Cambridge Bay has been making sure everyone is doing social distancing and following quarantine rules. Some volunteers in our community have come up with ways of keeping busy while social distancing is on.
Radio bingo was a success with merchandise prizes instead of cash.
Bingo cards were delivered to every household in the community but next bingo the bingo cards will be put into the mail boxes for residents to pick up. For winners the prizes were delivered to your door. This is the first time of this sort of events happening in Cambridge Bay and it is fun.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mayor and hamlet council have put a ban on alcohol coming into the community to keep residents safe and healthy. Some families live in overcrowded homes already and this is one way of keeping safe from the virus. The ban is on April 1 to 14.
The Elders will be receiving extra funds to purchase food during the pandemic from Kitikmeot Inuit Association and Indigenous Services Canada. Also for residents who wish to go out on the land to their cabins and camps. Please contact the KIA office to make arrangements for the on the land funds, and for Elders it will be automatically deposited to their bank accounts or cheques sent in the mail. Please let your Elders know and please enjoy life while this pandemic is on out on the land. Look after each other.
God Be With You Son.
