Current phase: where we are now

On March 5, 2021, we released A Path Forward: Next Stepsa strategy outlining how Yukon will move forward through the next phases of the pandemic.

This replaces our A Path Forward plan which we launched on May 15, 2020, and updated on August 1, 2020. 

Being in our current phase means that:

  • we must wear masks in indoor public spaces:
  • our social bubbles are limited to 15 people;
  • people can gather socially in groups of up to 50 people outdoors and up to 10 people indoors. Keep 2 metres (6 feet) between yourself and people who are not in your social bubble. 
  • indoor, planned, seated events can take place with up to 50 people with physical distancing;
  • outdoor, planned, seated events can take place with up to 100 people with physical distancing;
  • restaurants can provide dine-in services at 100% capacity with physical distancing, as well as take-out;
  • live music and karaoke can take place in bars, pubs and lounges;
  • personal services can be open;
  • people should travel responsibly within the territory; and
  • everyone must continue practising the Safe 6.

Facebook live updates

The next media briefing will be in Wednesday, April 28, at 10:30 a.m. Watch it live on the Government of Yukon's Facebook page. 

We provide a weekly Facebook live update on COVID-19. We will not have a live update every time there are new cases unless the Chief Medical Officer of Health thinks it’s necessary. 

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 in Yukon.

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.

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

Check with the jurisdiction where you want to travel to find out about their travel and health guidelines.

Find information about travelling to other Canadian jurisdictions.

Prohibited services

No services are prohibited in Yukon.
