There have been a total of 5,170 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the NWT since the onset of the pandemic.

Chief public health officer Dr Kami Kandola reported last week that data indicated the peak of the current Omicron wave may have passed in mid-January.

She said a “significant decrease” in the number of reported active cases was due to changes in isolation requirements, which have been reduced to seven days for people who are fully vaccinated.
