Welcome 2021 and Happy New Year everyone.

Christmas this year was different due to the pandemic and the need to be safe and keep social distancing, but residents of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut still held games and contests while following the Public Health rules and restrictions.

The recreation department held competitions by keeping safe and by Facebook computer and participating by submitting photographs and videos such as the best traditional dress contest, kamik contest, dance competition, Christmas lighting contest, cooking/baking contest, and much more. They even gave out 200 food hampers to residents in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.
Competition was based on the most likes and comments on the photographs and videos submitted to the facebook page of the hamlet of Cambridge Bay. It was so nice to see little ones and our youth participating. Congratulations to everyone who participated. Big Quana to all those who donated for their community. And to Zach and the wellness centre staff, and so many more to thank for taking care and making sure our community will still celebrate the holidays.

Students returned back to school on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Schedules and notices have been made available to parents and students, and also is posted on the Cambridge Bay News Facebook page.

We hope all our wonderful school students enjoyed their extra long break, and that they are just as excited and proud to do their homework packages being provided.

At this time during the pandemic, the classes are taking turns going to school, to keep practicing safety and social distancing, rules made by the Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Michael Patterson and the staff at the Department of Health, Government of Nunavut. We are thankful for students being able to still receive lunches being given out from the high school.

Vaccines for Covid-19 pandemic have arrived into Nunavut, those who are Elder and those working in the health field such as nurses and doctors will receive the vaccination first. Please check with your local health centres to see when you can receive yours.

Take good care everyone. Keep washing your hands and keep doing social distancing and listen to the rules. Stay healthy.

God Be With You Son.
