How Red Cross is responding to COVID-19 in Nunavut

The Canadian Red Cross was requested by the Government of Nunavut, the territorial Department of Health and the federal government to provide support for the COVID-19 response for Nunavut.
 
Two Epidemic Prevention and Control personnel were deployed to Arviat, Nunavut and provided support from Nov. 30 to Dec. 6, 2020. The team assessed numerous locations in the community and provided recommendations to help reduce COVID transmission. The team also provided prevention information and training.
 
In December 2020, a Canadian Red Cross COVID Testing Assistance Response Team provided support at two Government of Nunavut isolation sites in Winnipeg, where travellers from the territory were required to isolate before returning home. The team offered COVID-19 testing for the travellers.
