This report is a continuation of work conducted by the Arctic Council in 2020 that is compiled in the COVID-19 in the Arctic: A Briefing Document for Senior Arctic Officials and it will address the themes outlined in that document. These themes include public health actions and activities across the circumpolar Arctic and the consequences of pandemic and public health responses, with an emphasis on Indigenous and community perspectives.
