Nunatsiavut Government: Position on non-essential travel relaxed
Effectively immediately, the Nunatsiavut Government will no longer be asking individuals from within the province to refrain from travelling to, from or between any of the five Labrador Inuit communities. However, those who have been directed to self-isolate or self-monitor for symptoms of the coronavirus COVID-19 are still being asked to not enter the region.
Those travelling from outside Newfoundland and Labrador are still required to self-isolate for 14 days, as per provincial public-health travel restrictions, before entering the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area.
“With the COVID-19 Alert Level 2 in place throughout all regions of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the fact that there are no travel restrictions within the province, we are comfortable with people from outside of Nunatsiavut entering and moving between our communities for both essential and non-essential purposes,” says Nunatsiavut President Johannes Lampe.
President Lampe noted, however, that the status of travel within the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area and the rest of the province can change quickly.
“We will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly to any changes as they arise,” says the President. “
