Non-medical masks now mandatory at all Yukon airports. 11 Cases of COVID-19 Reported in the Yukon

The Government of Yukon has announced new health measures across all Yukon airports effective July 1, 2020. Individuals entering the building or the airport terminal will be required to wear a non-medical mask or face covering. This is in addition to the measures announced by Transport Canada on April 20, 2020.

As travel restrictions begin to lift, an increase in airport traffic is anticipated throughout the summer months. These additional protective measures will help slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure passengers and airport staff are able to maintain the same level of safety obtained from physical distancing, particularly at crowded sections such as security checkpoints and check-in lines.
