To limit the potential spread of COVID-19, Dr. Michael Patterson, Nunavut’s chief public health officer is asking all schools and daycares in Nunavut to temporary close.

Starting Tuesday, March 17, the schools and daycares will be closed for three weeks.

“It is with an over-abundance of caution that I have made this recommendation,” said
Dr. Patterson, in the statement.

“While there are still no confirmed cases in Nunavut, this approach aligns
with preventive measures in several jurisdictions across the country and ensures the
potential spread of COVID-19 is mitigated.”
