Self-monitoring for symptoms means paying close attention to how you feel. Now that we need to get used to living with COVID-19, it is a good idea for all of us to take notice of how we are feeling instead of carrying on with our day to day activities and ignoring symptoms.

Everyone should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19

If you develop symptoms or your symptoms get worse call a healthcare provider, and they will give you further instructions. Do not go in without speaking to them by phone first.

It is especially important to monitor when

  • You return from travel outside of the Northwest Territories
  • You believe you were exposed to COVID-19
  • A health care provider tells you that you were exposed to a person with COVID-19
  • A health care provider or employer asks you to self-monitor for other reasons
  • You are recovering from COVID-19
