Nunavut Premier PJ Akeeagok and Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Michael Patterson will give an update on the COVID-19 situation in the territory on Thursday at 11 ET. 

You can watch the update here, on our CBC Nunavut Facebook page or tune in to CBC North Radio One. 

As of Wednesday, the territory had 186 known active cases of COVID-19 in at least 14 communities. 

However, the territory is no longer testing people who believe they have the virus if they live in a community where the virus is known to be present. 

On Jan. 6, Health Minister John Main said he “fully expects” to see COVID-19 in all communities over the next month. 

School is set to resume Monday in Nunavut, after an extended holiday break due to COVID-19. 

On Tuesday, Education Minister Pamela Gross said the plan is for students to study virtually for a week, with in-person classes possibly resuming in Jan. 24.
