Nunavut’s public health emergency has been extended until July 23, 2020.

Health Minister George Hickes initially declared the public health emergency on March 20, 2020 due to Covid-19.

“We must remain diligent and aware that the threat of Covid-19 has not yet passed,” stated Hickes in Thursday’s press release.

“Please continue to maintain physical distancing and handwashing practices, limit any non-essential travel out of the territory, and stay home if you are feeling unwell. We must all continue doing our part to keep each other safe,” he added.

All existing measures under the public health emergency order still remain in effect.

As of July 6, there is still one presumptive case of Covid-19 in Nunavut.
