As a result of the emergency public health measures enacted in Nunavut to address the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, the Nunavut Research Institute is temporaily suspending our research support services. Until further notice, NRI will not be able to provide trichinella detection services. Public access to the NRI's research facilities in Iqaluit, Arviat, Igloolik, Rankin Inlet, and Cambridge Bay will also be restricted.
Any researchers who intend to visit Nunavut in 2020 are advised to postpone travel until after the Nunavut Government and individual Nunavut municipalities have lifted their current restrictions on non-essential travel to Nunavut. Any licensed researcher already in Nunavut who arrived after Sunday March 15 is directed to self-isolate for 14 days to protect the health and saftey of Nunavut residents. New pandemic response measures including the requirement for staff to work from home may also increase the time required to process new applications for scientific research licenses. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
