This guidance intends to prevent further outbreaks and monitor the situation in NWT schools for the remainder of the current school year. The attached public service announcement encourages students and staff with symptoms of COVID-19 to remain home and arrange follow-up with health care providers if necessary. Please also familiarize yourself with the latest daily screening tool for students and staff (updated May 21, 2021). Thank you for your continued efforts to keep our schools and communities safe.
