CBC North: Nunavut leaders say be kind as Pond Inlet wrestles with territory’s 1st COVID-19 case
Local Inuit organization providing support
The Qikiqtani Inuit Association is providing support to the person who tested positive with COVID-19, their family, as well as the community, it said in a news release.
The organization is working with its government partners and the local Arctic Co-op store “to ensure the family receives delivery of necessary cleaning supplies, groceries, and other social supports needed to self-isolate.”
It also called on the federal government to assist the government of Nunavut to provide communities in the territory basic services — in Pond Inlet’s case, essential infrastructure needed to connect the community to its water supply.
