The Kugluktuk Co-op wants is doing their part to flatten the curve and protect those most vulnerable amid COVID-19 concerns.

“Starting Thursday March 19 until April 1, for any of our elders over the age of 65, we will come to you and pick up your grocery list and shop for you,” reads a news release issued by Derek Power, manager at Kugluktuk Co-op.

“Once completed your order will be charged to your Co-op account and delivered to you. Our driver will be out for these special deliveries Tuesday and Thursday afternoons each week. This will help self isolation during these trying times, helping keep our community safe and healthy.”

Elders in need of this service can call 1 (867) 982-4231.

The Government of Nunavut has declared a public health emergency for COVID-19 and recommends social distancing, proper hygiene.
