NWT wide masking order will take effect at 8am - August 26, 2021

A NWT wide masking order has been announced and will take effect at 8:00AM on August 26, 2021 for all indoor public spaces.

The delta variant is spreading quickly across the NWT and is putting NWT at risk. Masking is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Hundreds of contagious droplets can be generated by just speaking to someone, but nearly all of them are blocked when wearing a mask. When masking is normalized (common practice) in communities, studies show that COVID-19 cases are significantly reduced. Masking is most important in crowded settings where physical distancing is difficult to maintain.
