On Monday, Public health officials in the N.W.T. gave a public exposure notice after a non-N.W.T. local tested positive for COVID-19 in Yellowknife.
Anyone aboard the Canadian North flight 244 from Edmonton to Yellowknife on June 28 in rows four to 10, who has not already been contacted, is requested to call their local public health unit or center and identify themselves.
These individuals together with their households should organize to quarantine for 14 days except if public health stipulates otherwise.
Currently, there are no other public risks linked to this infection that has been identified.
The latest case will not count in the N.W.T. total case count because the person is not an N.W.T. local. Four contacts of the newly infected individual have been identified and are in quarantine.
The infection was linked to out-of-territory travel according to the news release Monday.
