The Association of Yukon Communities is focused on the health and safety of our members and constituents. Accordingly, we are monitoring the ongoing conditions and impacting information associated with the COVID-19 virus.

Mandatory masks starting December 1

As of December 1, it will be mandatory to wear a non-medical mask in all indoor public spaces. This will extend to all Yukoners over the age of two with very limited exceptions. A list of places of exemption and people who will be granted exemption will be available on before December 1.

Drive-Thru screening in Whitehorse

Located at the old Centennial Motors wash bay, this drive-thru will provide screening for those who are experiencing symptoms and require testing. Testing will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. until Saturday, November 28 2020.

COVID-19 Testing Centre

From Monday, November 16, to Sunday, November 22, we tested 296 people at the CTAC in Whitehorse.

At the time of posting this statement (March 31, 2020), the Public Health Agency of Canada states that COVID-19 is a serious health threat, and the situation is evolving daily. The risk will vary between and within communities, but even with the decreasing number of cases in Canada, the risk to Canadians is still considered high.
