In Yellowknife the community is taking extra precautions to avert Covid-19. Here you will find resources for emerging wisely in the Northwest Territories.

Emerging Wisely into our first phase. Under dark skies and yes, snow. Tempting us inside, doors closed, residents peering outside wondering when we can take steps to meet the world on less dramatic terms.

Longing for the sun to shine, so I can venture out, on safer ground, to see the people I love, six feet apart, in the fresh air. This is where I’ll feel confident in choices made. With nature surrounding me and the wind to blow away the risk. Six feet apart with a glass of wine in hand, while the children play and the adults laughter peppers the conversation of our new world.
