The Government of Nunavut has issued two potential exposure notices for Nunavummiut who attended certain events in the NWT.
The exposure notices are for those who travelled to the hand games tournament in Fort Good Hope from Aug. 5 to 9, or travelled to Fort Good Hope or have been through the Yellowknife airport between Aug. 5 to 17.
If not fully vaccinated, those people are asked to isolate immediately for 14 days starting from the date of departure. Also, call the COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-975-8601 to schedule a test on day 12 or 13 of the 14-day-isolation.
Those who have been vaccinated are asked to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days, isolate if symptoms appear and wear a mask in all indoor public spaces.
They must also stay away from any indoor gatherings outside of their immediate household and not attend any restaurants, bars and other public indoor spaces where masks need to be removed.
Another more stringent notice has also been issued for Nunavummiut who attended the Arctic Indigenous Wellness Foundation between Aug. 10 and 13 in Yellowknife, or who travelled through the Yellowknife airport between Aug. 10 and 17.
