Health recommendations until November 30, 2021

Between October 15 and November 30, 2021, the Acting Chief Medical Officer of Health strongly recommends that you:

  • avoid non-essential services for 10 days after you travel outside the Yukon if you are not fully vaccinated;
  • limit social gatherings to 20 people indoors if everyone's fully vaccinated;
  • limit social gatherings to 6 people if not everyone is fully vaccinated; and
  • have an operational plan if you:
    • are a business;
