Some restaurants and bars are seating guests again, and campgrounds are open, but things aren't fully back to normal yet in the Northwest Territories.

At 7 a.m. MT Thursday, N.W.T. Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Kami Kandola and territorial medical director Dr. Sarah Cook took your COVID-19-related questions for an hour during a call-in show with host Loren McGinnis on CBC's The Trailbreaker.

Business advocates ask Alberta government to supply non-AHS doctors with PPE, according to CFIB survey .
A CFIB survey shows that a majority of private-sector health-care providers are concerned about the cost and supply of PPE. The costs of extra masks and other protective gear are starting to add up for private-sector health-care providers across Canada, so much so that some are worried about going out of business. Canadian Federation of Independent Business' latest survey shows that 88 per cent of doctors who work outside of provincial health-care systems are concerned about how much they'll have to spend on PPE.
