Yukon Communicable Disease Control (YCDC) and Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health are working diligently to ensure that essential services throughout Yukon continue to offer the key services that support our society during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The health and safety of licensed child care staff and children are of utmost importance. Child care centres and day homes also provide a very important service to Yukon families. During this time it is critical to maintain sufficient services to support essential service workers and the health and well-being of vulnerable children and families.

We have created the following list of public health measures to assist our centres and day homes in remaining open, to help maintain a safe and healthy environment and to minimize the risk of COVID-19 in Yukon.
