An online self-assessment tool to help Yukoners determine if they need to be tested for COVID-19 is now available. The screening tool asks a series of questions and takes users through steps to help determine whether they should call the HealthLine at 811 or take other actions.
The Government of Yukon has been working with Alberta Health Services to make this mobile friendly self-assessment tool available to reduce the pressure on 811 and front-line heath care staff. Yukoners who are experiencing symptoms but are unsure if they need to be tested should use the self-assessment tool before calling 811.
The self-assessment tool is available at yukon.ca/covid-19. The service is currently available in English and work is underway to make a French version available as soon as possible.
The health and safety of Yukoners is our government’s top priority. This online screening tool will help Yukoners determine the best course of action for when they have flu-like symptoms. It will also divert calls from 811, which will help ensure that Yukoners can access 811 services when they are needed.

This self-assessment tool will help Yukoners get important health information they need within minutes. It is an example of how modern technology can be used to improve the safety outcomes of all Yukoners. Thank you to the public servants who worked hard to make this tool available to Yukoners in a timely manner.
