NWT residents can dial 8-1-1 to reach the Service NWT COVID Support Line. This one, easy number connects the caller to the established self-isolation, enforcement, and regional centre accommodations lines.
The territory-wide Public Health Emergency has been extended to ensure that the risk to NWT residents is managed and the GNWT is prepared to respond quickly to any new cases and take appropriate steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our territory.
The State of Emergency that was put in effect early in the pandemic response, is not in effect at this time. In the event of a second wave or evidence of community spread within the territory, the GNWT is prepared to re-enact a State Of Emergency.
