Fort Liard COVID-19 shutdown lifted

Fort Liard is putting the worst of its COVID-19 days behind it as there have been no further cases of COVID-19 in the community since January 20th.

As of 10 p.m. on Saturday January 30th, residents will return to routine public health measures.

Public Health notes that the lifting of the containment order does not change any isolation advice individuals may have been provided by healthcare professionals.

“There are still a number of individuals self-isolating because they were assessed to be close contacts of COVID-19 cases.”
