NDP MP Lori Idlout with Jagmeet Sing MP

“After learning that I was recently a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19, I followed the public health measures by isolating and getting myself tested as quickly as I could. Yesterday I found out that I have also tested positive for COVID-19.

I am continuing to follow the public health procedures by isolating at home here in Iqaluit. I have been doing well and I am in good spirits. I am double vaccinated which is helping to keep my symptoms mild. I’m home with my supportive family who are being helpful while staying distanced and keeping safe. I thank the amazing health team in Iqaluit, for your tireless service and kindness.

In Nunavut, please contact 1-888-975-8601 between 10AM to 6PM, for COVID-19 related questions. In addition, the Government of Nunavut has very good information on their website:

I am sharing my diagnosis as a reminder that the pandemic is still ongoing. Even though we are all tired of the pandemic, it is very important to get vaccinated and get your booster shot when you can. As we hear of more cases appearing in more Nunavut communities, please remain calm.

Please continue to follow the advice of public health officials so that we can keep each other safe from the virus. I hope everyone is able to enjoy the holiday season in this difficult time.”
