NTI: Isolation Kits for Individuals Impacted by COVID-19

by ahnationtalk on May 3, 20217 Views

(May 3, 2021, Iqaluit) Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) has expanded eligibility for Isolation Kits to support Nunavut Inuit to stay home.

Inuit undertaking 14-day isolation may now have an Isolation Kit delivered to their family in their home community. This includes medical travel patients and medical travel escorts during isolation periods including travel to Iqaluit and in medical travel isolation hubs in southern centres. This is an addition to the current program, in which Isolation Kits are provided to Nunavut Inuit who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are required to isolate for 14 days as a result of contact tracing.

“I strongly encourage Nunavut Inuit to follow the orders of the Chief Public Heath Officer,” said Aluki Kotierk, President of NTI. “Stay home, wear a mask, wash your hands and if you can, consider getting the vaccine. I got the vaccine as soon as I could.”

Isolation Kits are intended to support Nunavut Inuit to stay home. The kits will assist Inuit with food, cleaning supplies and baby supplies. Supplies will vary on the household and the information provided to NTI.

For communities with active cases, verification by a health care provider is not necessary. Currently, this includes Iqaluit, Kinngait and Rankin Inlet. All other Nunavut communities and Inuit living outside of the Nunavut Settlement Area require a signature by the health care provider.

For more information on NTI’s Isolation Kit Program, please email [email protected] or call 1-888-236-5400. Any information provided will be strictly confidential.

The NTI Isolation Kit was developed with Government of Canada’s Indigenous Community Support Funding.
