State's Vaccine Guidelines

The Yukon government has announced a state of emergency and announced a slew of public health measures directed at stemming the spread of COVID-19, including a proof-of-vaccination requirement that will go into force on Saturday.

The new regulations also include required masks in all indoor public settings and outdoor public settings where physical separation is not possible and capacity limitations on certain sorts of indoor and outdoor meetings, according to the report.

While the guidelines will be implemented beginning Nov. 13, Yukoners are “highly encouraged” to take the steps immediately, according to a statement released by the territory.

Yukon’s top doctor has advised against traveling between villages, and while schools can remain open, students should wear masks at their desks.

According to Dr. Catherine Elliott, the territory’s acting chief medical officer of health, the region is experiencing “dramatic increases in COVID-19 dissemination,” and citizens must band together now to safeguard the territory’s healthcare system.

“By implementing new interim restrictions, we will be able to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and relieve pressure on our healthcare system.” Premier Sandy Silver replied in a statement that “all Yukoners have a role to play in keeping our communities secure.”

The announcement came after Yukon reported 80 other COVID-19 infections between Friday and Monday, bringing the total number of active cases to 169. According to the territory, 132 cases of COVID-19 are active in Whitehorse residents, 20 cases in Car marks, and four in Car cross. At the same time, Burwash Landing, Pelly Crossing, and Teslin each have one resident with an active case. The new public health capacities will be in effect until at least Dec. 3.
