Downward active COVID-19 case trend continues: Dr. Kandola

The Office of the Chief Public Health Officer says region-specific COVID-19 restrictions in at least two areas may lift by the end of the week.

On Tuesday, the OCPHO said in a statement that it intends to revoke both the COVID-19 Gathering Order in Hay River and the Temporary COVID-19 Restrictions in K’atl’odeeche First Nation Reserve Lands at 11:59 P.M on November 7th.

Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Kami Kandola says while this is evidence that the
restrictions outlined in the Public Health Orders are being effective this is a greater

However, when the geographically specific restrictions are lifted, residents will then fall under The NWT-wide Public Health Order, which includes a restriction on gatherings.

Dr. Kandola adds while the collective NWT outbreak is not over and residents should continue to practice healthy habits, she is pleased to see cases continue on a downward trend collectively.
