The territory-wide Public Health Emergency has been extended by Minister of Health and Social Services, Julie Green under the NWT’s Public Health Act on the advice of Chief Public Health Office Dr. Kami Kandola.
The latest extension continues through April 27th. The first Public Health Emergency was declared on March 18th, 2020.
There are currently two active cases of Covid-19 in the NWT. One belongs to an NWT resident and the other to a non-NWT worker.
Green says the Public Health Emergency is required to continue to decisively respond to shifts in the NWT’s own public health situation, and maintain preventative measures.
