With this, the territory becomes the last place in Canada to report a confirmed case of the virus.\nOn April 30, it was announced that the first positive test for COVID-19 was confirmed by the territory.\nDr. Michael Patterson, Nunavut's Chief Public Health Officer, confirmed that this case is someone from Pond Inlet, a community on Baffin Island.\n"We did anticipate that it was only a matter of time before our territory had a confirmed case, and unfortunately today is that day," said Dr. Patterson.\nContact tracing in the community has been initiated and the rapid response team is on the way to Pond Inlet.\nOnce there, the team will provide care and necessary supports so that the situation can be managed.\nThe person who has tested positive is currently doing well and in isolation.\n"There is no need to panic," said Premier Joe Savikataaq. "Nunavut has had time to prepare, and we are in a solid position to manage this."\nThe premier also asked people to not place blame or shame anyone because of this positive case.\nView this post on Instagram About an hour or so apart from each other these photos were taken of the just shy of a full moon, it had me fooled with how bright and full it looked 🤓 Seriously tho how pretty are those mountains, more pictures to follow once I get around to uploading from my dslr 🙃 #iphonephotography #nunavut #pondinlet #goexplorecanada #baffinisland #alwaysexploring A post shared by Chantell (@chantell87) on Feb 9, 2020 at 7:33pm PST\nAll travel to and from Pond Inlet, including travel by land, is restricted except for cargo and emergency travel.\nUp until this confirmation, all other provinces and territories except for Nunavut had reported cases of the virus.\nSavikataaq also asked for people "to support communities and each other as we overcome COVID-19 in Nunavut."\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Andrew Tagak (@kuniksalik) on Feb 13, 2020 at 2:35pm PST\nDuring a press conference about the confirmed case, Savikataaq assured people that the territory will beat the virus.\nOn April 20, the Northwest Territories became the first place in Canada to have all of its confirmed cases recover.\nYukon has 11 confirmed cases as of April 30 at 11:00 a.m. ET and hasn't reported any new ones since April 19.
