Public health officials have updated the COVID-19 exposure list with two locations in Hay River.

Both exposure were on Friday, Sept. 17.

  • Chase the Ace event at the Legion, between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
  • Dog House Sports Pub, between 9:45 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Public health officials are asking both fully vaccinated, as well as partially and non-vaccinated residents to simply monitor for symptoms. If symptoms develop then they should isolate and arrange for testing.
