In Whitehorse, Yukon Premier Sandy Silver and Dr. Brendan Hanley, Yukon’s chief medical officer of health, provide an update on the territory’s response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. Yukon is making masks mandatory in all indoor public places. The territory recently announced it was ending its travel bubble with British Columbia as COVID-19 cases surge in that province and across the country. Everyone entering the territory is also required to self-isolate for 14 days, except critical services workers. Exceptions also include residents of border areas such as Atlin, Lower Post, Fire Side, Jade City, Fraser and Pleasant Camp as well as those exercising an Aboriginal or treaty right.
