After months of being COVID-19 free.
The Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO) has reported three presumptive positive cases in the territories.
The cases are located in Inuvik and Yellowknife.
One individual travelled from Alberta to Inuvik by road and arrived Oct.10.
This person has isolated immediately.
The territorial government says there are no further risks and that “there are no concerns for exposure along the route.”
The two positives tests in Yellowknife came late last night and are currently under investigation.
“Follow-up tests with our partner public health laboratory in Edmonton are therefore required for confirmation purpose,” says Dr. Any-Delli-Pizzi, deputy chief public health officer.
CKLB will continue to follow up with the CPHO.
