City Hall, the Fieldhouse, the Multiplex and the Ruth Inch Memorial Pool will all be closed effective September 25th to October 4th.
Events and programs run by the city are suspended until October 4th or until directed otherwise by the Office of the Chief Public Health Officer.
The Municipal Enforcement Division will also be closed to the public. Residents can still contact dispatch and reach MED via e-mail.
The Yellowknife Public Library will be open by appointment only while the Yellowknife Community Arena will continue to function as a temporary day shelter, as it is considered an essential service.

Outdoor facilities, including parks and playgrounds, will remain open with signage reaffirming public safety steps and OCPHO restrictions including respecting the 25 person limit for outdoor gatherings.
