    The Government of Yukon has released A Path Forward: Next Steps, a strategy outlining how Yukon will move forward through the next phases of the COVID 19 pandemic.

     

    The strategy includes details about reducing and modifying current restrictions. The next phase will see social bubbles increasing from a maximum of 15 people to 20. It will also up gathering sizes; unorganized gatherings will be able to have 20 people indoors or 100 outdoors. Indoor organized gatherings will be able to take place at venue capacities and outdoor gatherings can include up to 200 people.

     

    The next phase will also remove capacity restrictions on bars and restaurants and work toward 100 per cent capacity when supported by high vaccination rates and compliance with operational plans.

     

    It will also broaden the scope for alternative self-isolation plans to include more work-isolations and tourism isolations where safe to do so. It will also mean Yukon bubbling with other jurisdictions when it is safe.

     

    There is no date for when Yukon could move to the next phase. The decision to move forward hinges on Yukoners following public health orders.
