Self-isolation is required
Following advice from the Chief Medical officer of Health, everyone arriving in Yukon must self-isolate for 14 days. This includes all workers arriving in Yukon who are working at a:
- placer or hard rock mine;
- exploration camp; or
- any other business or duty associated with the mining and exploration industry.
Upon entering Yukon, every person must present a signed declaration to an enforcement officer. This provides information on where the person will be self-isolating and their travel plans within Yukon.
How to self-isolate
If you’re a resident of Yukon, you must go directly to your home or another suitable safe place to self-isolate for 14 days. We may direct you where to go. The 14 days begins when you arrive at your place of isolation.
You can self-isolate at your home on a placer mining claim or in a work camp if:
- you are not a resident of Yukon and you’ve spent the last 14 consecutive days within Canada;
- the home is a single residential unit used to house 1 family;
- the home is the only housing unit at that claim or camp;
- all of the persons self-isolating in the home are related by blood, spousal relationship, or adoption; and
- you’re bringing with you into Yukon, or have already made arrangements to have delivered to your home, supplies sufficient to last for 14 days without replenishment for everyone self-isolating in the home.
If you do not meet the requirements above and cannot self-isolate, email us for information and advice for self-isolating workers.
