Health Minister Julie Green provided some details about the possible risk of exposure to any of the three new presumptive cases in the Northwest Territories Friday afternoon.

She said public health officials are looking to contact anyone who was at the following locations:

Anytime Fitness in Yellowknife between 3 and 4:30 p.m. Oct. 12

The Yellowknife RCMP detachment’s waiting area between 11 and 11:30 a.m. Oct. 13

According to a release from the GNWT, two Yellowknifers tested positive. The first had travelled, the second had not. It was the second person – believed to have been infected by the individual who left the territory – who attended the gym and detachment.

Anyone who was in these locations at those times must self-isolate for 14 days.

More details are available by calling public health at 867-767-9120.

The story will be updated.
