CPHO Recommendation for First 72 Hours

The Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO) is recommending that residents returning from travel outside of the NWT be extremely diligent in monitoring for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 infections especially within the first 72 hours (3 days) after their return.

This means that for the first 72 hours on return from travel you:

  • limit contacts between your household and others;

  • wear well-fitted and constructed masks in social settings, especially in indoor crowded settings;

  • avoid high risk activities; and

  • do not attend large gatherings.

These measures will protect your family, friends and NWT communities. Anyone regardless of travel and vaccination status should isolate and arrange for testing if they develop and COVID-19 symptoms.

Thank you,
