Several changes are being implemented at City facilities following the recent COVID-19 update from the Office of the Chief Public Health Officer.

Effective today, City facilities will only be open to those aged 18 years and older, with revised schedules to accommodate program suspensions and staffing shortages.

All City programming for children under the age of 18 is suspended. Anyone visiting a City facility is asked to bring Government-issued identification, which will be required upon entry.

Due to school closures, the Yellowknife Public Transit afternoon express bus route is suspended from service from now until further notice.
