Fully vaccinated travellers will be free to travel in and out of the territory without isolating and without a COVID-19 test starting June 14.

Travellers need to apply for an isolation exemption through the Nunavut government and provide proof of vaccination.
Patterson says vaccinated adults with children who aren’t vaccinated will still need to complete 14 days of isolation.
