November 3, 2021: COVID-19 case update

The Yukon’s acting Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Catherine Elliott, reports 29 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 from noon Monday, November 1, until noon Wednesday, November 3. The number of active cases is currently 77.

People from out of the territory who are diagnosed in the Yukon are counted in the Yukon’s active case count but not in the Yukon’s total case count as they are counted in their home jurisdiction.

The total number of confirmed cases in Yukon residents since March 2020 is 973.

Since March 2020, 889 people have recovered. Ten people have died. 

For the new cases since noon on Monday, November 1: 

  • Twenty-seven are residents of Whitehorse.
  • One is a resident of Carmacks.
  • One is a resident of Watson Lake.

Testing and vaccines

The acting Chief Medical Officer of Health continues to remind everyone who has symptoms to get tested. Anyone experiencing symptoms in Whitehorse should call the COVID-19 Testing and Assessment Centre at 867-393-3083 or book online to arrange for testing.

People in communities should contact their rural community health centre. 

Yukoners are also reminded that the best way to protect themselves and the people around them is to get fully vaccinated. COVID-19 and its variants spread easily. People can pass infection on even if they do not have any symptoms. Everyone aged 12 and older can get vaccinated in the Yukon.
