Keep Your Distance:

  • Always keep a minimum distance of 2 metres between yourself and others (including staff and other program participants).

Hygiene Considerations:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (more than 60% alcohol)
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer upon entering a facility
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve
  • Avoid touching surfaces people touch often
  • Instead of a handshake, give a friendly wave
  • Use any necessary personal protective equipment, as directed
  • If you are a staff member – ensure surfaces are regularly disinfected in accordance with the city guidelines

The information will be used to screen you (and persons you provide care for) for heightened COVID-19 risk factors prior to entering a City facility or participating in a City program. In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis that coincides with your visit to a City facility or participation in a City program, your name and contact information may be provided to public health authorities for purposes of contact tracing.  Questions about the collection and use of this information should be directed to City of Yellowknife.
