People who attended Hay River’s Chase the Ace on Friday evening or the town’s Doghouse bar are told to monitor themselves for symptoms of Covid-19.

In an exposure advisory on Sunday, the NWT government said the warning applied to anyone, regardless of vaccination status, who was at the Legion for Chase the Ace from 7:30pm till 9pm on September 17.

The advisory also applies to anyone at the Doghouse between 9:45pm and 11pm that night.


“Fully and not fully vaccinated individuals who were at this location should self-monitor for symptoms. Isolate and get tested if symptoms develop,” the advisory states for both venues.

Hay River had five active Covid-19 cases as of Friday, while the town’s Diamond Jenness Secondary School reported exposure to the virus at the school earlier in the week.
