President of Nunatsiavut Government Johannes Lampe says that the presumptive COVID-19 case that was in Makkovik last week was a wakeup call and we cannot take any chances.
He says that the Labrador Grenfell Health and the Department of Health and Social Development worked closely together to respond to this situation.
Residents of Makkovik took swab tests and all samples came out negative.
Lampe encourages everyone to continue to adhere to Alert Level 5 protocols that are in place, including no travelling to other Nunatsiavut communities either by air or snowmobile.
We will be speaking with President Johannes Lampe later in our AtjiKangitut program to get an update from the Nunatsiavut Government.
