COVID-19 Updates

Travellers and employees are required to wear a mask while inside Northwest Territories airport terminal buildings. 

You are not be required to wear a mask if you have medical reasons that make it unsafe for you. The following other exemptions also apply:

  • Individuals unable to remove their mask without assistance.
  • Children under the age of two.
  • Individuals authorized by security, airline staff or airport staff to remove their mask for identification purposes.
  • Individuals will be allowed to temporarily remove their mask to eat, drink or take oral medications.

The public is encouraged to bring their own mask; however, if an individual does not have their own mask, there may be some available for use at our airports. Wearing a mask does not replace other protective  measures including physical distancing, hand washing, covering a cough or sneeze, not touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands, self-monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms, and staying home when sick.

Until further notice, only passengers, employees and service staff are permitted inside Northwest Territories airports. If you are dropping someone off or picking someone up, please do not enter the terminal. 

 

The Department of Infrastructure is responsible for the operation and maintainence of 27 airports across the Northwest Territories as well as commercial development and leasing on airport properties.
