(Fort Smith, January 14, 2022) – The NTHSSA is informing residents of Fort Simpson that due to staff redeployment, the Health Centre will be running on emergency services from Monday, January 17 through Wednesday January 19. Emergency services will still be available; regular appointments and non-urgent issues may be delayed. Contact the health centre for information.
If you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19 or you are concerned with being in contact with COVID-19 please remain at home and call your local Health Centre for screening. Calling ahead to the Health Centre first will best allow the staff to provide you with proper directions and information on where testing will take place.
If you are travelling or returning to the NWT, please limit your contacts for the first 72 hours. If you received rapid tests, use them on arrival and after 72 hours and isolate if you get a positive result. Residents can assist by following healthy habits, wearing a mask, limiting contacts, staying home if you have any symptoms at all, and getting vaccinated if you have not yet done so.
