Masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces

You have to wear a mask in all indoor public spaces in Yukon. Find out more about wearing a non-medical mask.

Everyone entering Yukon has to self-isolate

If you arrive in Yukon from outside Canada you have to follow federal quarantine rules. These are different from Yukon self-isolation rules.

Find all information about self-isolation.

Travel and borders

We recommend Yukoners stop non-essential travel outside of the territory. If you do have to travel, practise the Safe 6 and wear a mask. 

See all information about travel and borders.  

If you're travelling to Alaska

The border between the United States and Canada is closed to all non-essential travel. Americans can travel into Canada if they’re travelling:

  • to Alaska; or
  • from Alaska to the rest of the United States.

Americans travelling through Yukon have to follow a designated travel corridor. We give travellers a map of this route at Yukon borders. The State of Alaska introduced travel guidance. Read Alaska’s health guidance for travellers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you're travelling to the Northwest Territories

Before you travel, read the Northwest Territories travel guidelines.

If you're travelling elsewhere
