Current phase (started July 1; end date to be determined)
Being in Phase 2 of Yukon's plan for lifting COVID-19 restrictions means:
- people can gather socially in groups of up to 50 people outdoors and up to 10 people indoors but must still stay physically distanced;
- restaurants can provide dine-in services at 100% capacity if they can maintain physical distancing, as well as take-out;
- personal services can reopen;
- people should travel responsibly within the territory;
- everyone must continue practising the Safe 6;
- households can combine with 1 other household to form a 2-household bubble even if that amounts to more than 10 people.
- Residents of Yukon, British Columbia, Northwest Territories and Nunavut do not have to self-isolate when they arrive in the territory.
- Residents of other parts of Canada who arrive in Yukon must self-isolate, with limited exceptions.

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 Northwest Territories
Before you travel, read Northwest Territories travel guidelines.
