Emergency Support Services

The Yukon government’s Emergency Support Services (ESS) provides advice and support for people in self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ESS team works to understand each person’s unique situation and suggest the best and safest option for self-isolation. Where possible the goal is to support people to self-isolate in their own homes.
