Emerging Wisely – Path to Eased Public Health Restrictions
On this page
Emerging Wisely outlines the GNWT’s path forward to emerging safely and wisely from the current COVID-19 public health restrictions.
Emerging Wisely provides a five-part plan taking the territory from the containment measures in-place today through four phases of eased measures. The phases are as follows:
- Essential Steps and Containment
- Relaxing Phase 1: First steps
- Relaxing Phase 2: Next steps - Current Phase
- Relaxing Phase 3: Careful steps past the second wave
- Relaxing Phase 4: Final measures lifted
Emerging Wisely identifies what requirements must be met to begin moving into each phase, and includes progressively eased restrictions on people, businesses, and activities important to residents.
Note: Businesses, offices, and organizations can apply to have their requirements reconsidered based on their unique situation. This could include restrictions like maximum capacity if they have a very large space. They will need to complete and submit the Application to Vary from Public Health Order Requirements Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submit as early as possible and expect follow-ups from public health staff.
Access this sortable Emerging Wisely Risk Assessment Sheet for the most up-to-date information for organizations and businesses on which phase they sit in, and what they need in preparation for opening. This sheet is updated regularly with new information and risk assessments, so check back often.
